Kingston Smith shortlisted for Consultancy of the Year at the UK-India Awards 2017
Kingston Smith, the top 20 firm of chartered accountants and business advisers with an office in Redhill, is delighted to announce that it has been shortlisted for Consultancy of the Year at the UK-India Awards 2017. The UK-India Awards, organised by London-based media house, India Inc, celebrate the partnership between the UK and India, recognising companies who make significant contributions to the bilateral relationship. The efforts of organisations and individuals in strengthening these relations are also commended. The winners will be announced at a Gala Dinner and Awards night on Friday 12 May 2017 at the Sheraton Grand Park Lane.
Kingston Smith’s close relationship with India began more than two decades ago when the firm started advising the technology arm of one of India’s leading conglomerates on doing business in the UK. Today, its India Group advises a large number of Indian businesses on their international operations, including the delivery of compliance services and advising on international business structures, taxation issues and corporate finance.
Paul Samrah, partner at Kingston Smith’s Redhill office, said: “This is great recognition for our India Group. We bring to the table a thorough understanding of how businesses operate in both India and the UK which, along with our commercial expertise and empathy, helps to achieve the best results for our clients.”
"This association was started with a lot of effort from a few local businessmen and has proved to be a very powerful and useful tool for our business. The BHBPA has influence at the top level; when action is needed, the BHBPA gets it done. We are kept in touch with all that is happening on our doorstep and will often act because of what is published in the weekly emails / newsletters."
"If Carlsberg did networking they would do it the BHBPA way. Each event is packed with great ideas, thought provoking presentations and fun. As a small business we feel supported and part of the community. We have built friendships and business relationships and there is always plenty of advice on hand to benefit us all so don’t hesitate to join whatever the nature of your business. "
"I am delighted to have a long-standing relationship with the BHBPA. Since its foundation the Association has gone from strength to strength and there is no doubt that it has brought huge benefits to its members and the business community as a whole through the partnerships it has formed with the local authorities, Sussex Police and local organisations. It is paramount that Burgess Hill businesses have an effective collective voice."
"“I have belonged to this group since I started my own business, Lea Graham Associates, in 1986. The association has been through several incarnations since then, but its most recent one, BHBPA, is by far the best.
It’s much more than just a networking group, although it is supremely good at that too. BHBPA is inclusive and friendly and acts like a mutual-support society. The events are stimulating, worthwhile and often great fun and I believe most members share this opinion.”"
