Forbes magazine recently published a list of the Best Tax & Accounting Firms 2021, partnering with market research company Statista to create a list of the most recommended firms for tax and accounting services in the United States. This year saw a total of 32 PrimeGlobal North American member firms included on Forbes' list representing over half of all PrimeGlobal North American firms. Of the 278 accounting and tax firms identified, PrimeGlobal members represented over 11% of all firms named on Forbes' list. 

2020 has been a challenging year for tax and accounting firms with the disruption caused by COVID-19. Advances in technology has meant that many firms have had to adapt to new ways of working. Although there has been dramatic transformation throughout the profession, PrimeGlobal members have continued to thrive. PrimeGlobal North American firms have been able to adapt, learn and provide quality services to their clients during what has been a difficult period. The resilience, strength and exceptional standards set by our North American member firms has been recognized in Forbes' Best Tax and Accounting Firms 2021 list.
