Forbes Names Squire Among Best Tax Firms in the United States
We are thrilled to announce that Squire has been named among the best Tax Firms in the United States for 2021 by Forbes Magazine.
(Forbes Best Tax and Accounting Firms in 2021 List can be seen here)
This is the second year that Forbes partnered with a market research company Statista to recommend firms for tax and accounting services in the U.S. The results are based on surveys of tax and accounting professionals and their clients. This year is an especially important year to receive the award as it is heavily based on how firms responded to COVID-19.
The survey included questions that were meant to probe the quality of service firms offered, as well as seek out firms’ responses to COVID-19. For example, did the firm provide support when it came to navigating furloughs, payroll changes, and assist with PPP forgiveness and other such programs?
Squire has always provided significant support to clients and that was even more evident throughout this challenging year. We actively help clients make decisions for their business or themselves and when programs are available to help maintain work operations, we help clients apply for those programs.
In addition to educating clients via appointments and meetings, we also provided webinars and articles about Employee Retention Tax Credit, Tax Impact overview, as well as maintained a dedicated COVID-19-specific resource page that has continued to share ongoing updates to help our clientele navigate the new regulations.
As we have worked to support clients throughout the year, we also made a substantial effort to assist our tax and accounting professionals here at Squire. We strive to help employees balance home and work with flexible schedules, remote working opportunities, training programs, wellness programs, and tuition reimbursements. These efforts are highlighted in our Best Companies To Work For in 2020 Award from Utah Business Magazine.
There were also a lot of changes in the workplace when it came to COVID-19, and we set-up programs and resources to help our team through the transition. For example, we are taking part in the Stay Safe to Stay Open pact to help our employees stay safe and healthy. Our firm also provided care packages to everyone to help with the transition.
This award reflects our rich history of providing the best service and support possible for our clientele and staff since the firm was founded nearly 50 years ago. We will continue to find innovative ways to serve and connect in the new year.
