ACCOUNTABILITY Edinburgh Limited has won the Bookkeeping Partner of the Year award at Xero’s prestigious annual awards held in Manchester on Wednesday, 1st May 2024. The awards evening, which took place at New Century, Manchester, showcased the achievements of those apps, accountants and bookkeepers supporting the UK small business community.

Small businesses are facing tough economic conditions from inflation, to low economic growth, to labour shortages. Now more than ever they need the support of accountants, bookkeepers and apps to stay on track and mitigate the impact of these challenges.

With the pace of technological change increasing, and ways of working continue to evolve, accountants and bookkeepers are continuously adapting to these changes to stay ahead, whilst remaining a trusted advisor to their clients.

There were 13 trophies up for grabs for UK-based accountants, bookkeepers and apps, including National Partner of the Year, Bookkeeping Partner of the Year and Innovative Partner of the Year.

Accountability Edinburgh Limited was founded in 2012 by Rosie Berridge and offers a virtual finance team service to SMEs across Scotland. 

The Xero Awards judges said: “Accountability Edinburgh shines through as a wonderful example of a bookkeeping firm that is smartly utilising core Xero product while enhancing tasks with the app ecosystem. Their client-first approach impressed our judges, reflecting a deep grasp of client needs. By adopting Xero universally, Accountability Edinburgh have shown they have a cohesive team dedicated to serving clients. Their entry was exemplary, showcasing thoughtful solutions tailored to client requirements. Rosie and her team embody the essence of Xero, setting a benchmark for excellence in bookkeeping practices.”

Katie Hayward, UK Country Manager at Xero, said: “It’s a privilege to work with such passionate accounting, bookkeeping and app partners and see the impact they have on small businesses. What I love about the Xero Awards is that they celebrate those who are showing innovation and adaptability, whether that’s by diversifying their services, realising new efficiencies, or implementing technology, in order to help their clients survive and grow.”

Rosie Berridge, Founder and Director at Accountability Edinburgh Limited commented on the win: “I’m absolutely thrilled that the team have been recognized for their hard work. We work hard to deliver an exemplary service for our clients, providing meaningful, reliable management accounts to small businesses across the country. It’s fantastic to have our efforts recognized by such a big name in the industry.”
