We’re finalists for the 2022 Xero Awards!

We are finalists for 2 Xero Awards for 2022! Small Firm of the Year, and Total Xero Award.

If you know us at Kinder Pocock, you know that we love Xero and think it’s the best online accounting software to help your small business to grow.

We weren’t going to enter this year, because it’s not all about the awards, it’s about doing our very best to support our awesome clients.

But the team insisted, so we went for it. So surprised to be nominated as finalists in not 1 but 2 categories, and even more thrilled that all of the other finalists are friends of ours, in the Xero Community.

You can check out Xero’s award announcement here, expect rock and roll, and not your average dull accountant!

Xero said:

“We’d like to take this opportunity to give each and every applicant in this year’s Xero Awards a round of applause. The judges were blown away by the quality of the entries – and while they could only select a handful of finalists, we are incredibly proud to partner with each and every one of those who entered, and who join us every day on our mission to support the small business community.

A big thank you to everyone who entered the awards this year. We love working with so many rockstar partners.”

What it means to you, our clients

We are Xero to the core, and have been since 2012. Finding Xero 10 years ago opened up a whole world of possibilities for technology to enable efficiencies and to build a better business, both for us and our clients.

We’re still constantly developing and redefining to be as efficient as possible, and to support our clients to do so too, so that they can focus on their goals.

This means that if you’re using Xero, or looking to use Xero, you’re choosing an accountant who is not only recognised by Xero as being one of the top 5 Xero Accountants in the UK, but also one of 3 Xero UK super-users who knows Xero inside and out.

We know how to utilise Xero and it’s eco-system of apps to the fullest, and we’re all Xero certified.

Find out more here about why we’re so keen for you to use Xero, and how you benefit.

What it means to us

It’s great to be recognised by Xero and the judging panel for our work, and  it’s huge for the team here at Kinder Pocock.

Xero is not only great software, but so easy to use, and visually pleasing.

It’s vitally important that we have fun in our work, and the best relationships with our team and our clients, and Xero frees us up to do this.

It’s a privilege to be a part of the Xero community, and to count the finalists in both categories as our friends.

Whoever wins will be representing us all!

Previous Xero awards

Xero’s MD at the time, Gary Turner had this to say:

““Sharon’s natural enthusiasm for great client service, together with her use of new technology to enable her clients to maximise their potential is something that we are delighted to recognise with this award. She has also been a highly valuable source of customer insights for us, too, enabling us to tune and improve Xero for the benefit of all our customers.”
