Top 28th Ranked UK Accountancy Firm


We are very proud to announce that they have been ranked in 28th position in a list of the top 100 accountancy firms in the UK.

The revered industry 50+50 list, compiled by Accountancy Age magazine, ranks the top performing fee earning firms in the country.  Armstrong Watson previously held position at number 32 in the 2016 list.

The firm continues their ambitious growth strategy across the region, having acquired the Glasgow branch of Haines Watts at the start of 2018, and are soon to open their first office in Newcastle in October. The year to date has also seen 7 new partners join Armstrong Watson, including Pamela Coyne’s appointment in Glasgow as Restructuring, Recovery and Insolvency Partner and Bryce Niven recently joining the firm as the Glasgow office’s first Chartered Financial Planning Consultant.

Commenting on Armstrong Watson’s ranking, Paul Dickson CEO and Managing Partner said,

“Being ranked as the 28th largest firm in the UK is something we are very proud of and recognises our ambitious growth plans and our aim to be the ‘go to’ firm across the North of England and Scotland.

“This ranking demonstrates not only our size, but how as a business this enables us to have the skills, depth and breadth to help our clients achieve prosperity, ensuring a secure future and providing piece of mind.”

This accolade follows the news earlier this week that Jim Meakin, former Head of Tax at top 10 international accountancy firm RSM, has joined Armstrong Watson as Tax Partner, taking on the role of Head of Tax firm wide.
