What is UK200Group & what does it mean for our clients

Established in 1986, UK200Group is the UK’s leading quality assured, mutual professional association of independent accountants and lawyers. Our membership requires a commitment by us to provide our clients with a very high standard of professionalism and service, no matter what type of work we do for you. We are reviewed annually to ensure that the Practice delivers these services consistently.

Being a member of UK200Group means being part of a large but close quality assurance community offering access to a vast resource of knowledge and expertise in specialist industry sectors and technical business matters.

The group is structured in such a way that member firms with specific niche market experience have the opportunity to join a Specialist Industry Group, allowing all members to benefit from training courses and discussions with experts in the field. Our partners Ray Crace, Eric Williams and Debbie Wakefield are on the Special Industry Group Committee’s for the following sectors - Agriculture, Charities, Healthcare.

The Group also has Technical panels which are made up of individual accountants of member firms who meet the criteria in technical qualifications and achievements in their particular field of expertise. Francis Whitbread is a member of the Tax panel.
