Forbes magazine recently published their list of the Best Tax & Accounting Firms 2022, partnering with market research company Statista to create a list of the most recommended firms for tax and accounting services in the United States. We're delighted to confirm this year saw a total of 26 PrimeGlobal North American member firms included on the Forbes' list, representing over 40% of all of our North American firms. 

Of the 223 accounting and tax firms, PrimeGlobal members represent over 11% of all firms named on Forbes' list. This is an extraordinary achievement, and it demonstrates the superior business practices that PrimeGlobal members follow and the high-quality services they provide to their clients. In a time of unprecedented change, PrimeGlobal North American firms have continued to adapt, learn, and provide quality services to their clients, and their inclusion on this list recognizes the resilience, strength, and exceptional standards set by our member firms.

“This recognition for our member firms is particularly gratifying as it was achieved by recommendations from both peers and clients. These esteemed PrimeGlobal firms are world-class and promote cultures that support outstanding client experiences. Business leaders seek trusted advisors who provide solutions and are anticipatory. That defines these award winning firms.” Michelle Arnold, Executive Director North America, PrimeGlobal

To create the list of America’s Best Tax & Accounting Firms, the market research company Statista considered 4,400 survey responses from CPAs, enrolled agents, tax lawyers, accountants and CFOs between August 3 and September 13, 2021. Survey participants who worked for a tax or accounting firm could name up to ten firms for tax and ten firms for accounting that they would recommend if their company were not able to take on a client.
