Inside Public Accounting (IPA) has awarded KROST, and its affiliated tax consulting practice, five prestigious accolades based on their annual INSIDE Public Accounting Survey and Analysis of Firms:

• 2018 IPA Best of the Best Firm.
• 2018 IPA Best of the Best Fastest-Growing Firm.
• 2018 IPA 200 Firm.
• 2018 IPA 200 Fastest-Growing Firm.
• 2018 Fastest-Growing Over $5 Million Firm.

KROST was named Fastest-Growing Over $5 Million and Top 200 Firm for the third year in a row and Best of the Best two years in a row. In addition to being recognized as a Best of the Best, Top 200 Firm, and Fastest Growing over $5 Million, KROST was also awarded with Top 200 Fastest-Growing Firm and Best of the Best Fastest-Growing Firm. The recognitions were due in large part to their 29.6% growth year over year, which improved the firm’s ranking from 137 to 110.

“It’s been such an incredible year working with the most talented staff. We feel so lucky to have such tremendous growth while maintaining the family culture of a smaller firm. It is an honor to be awarded not only one, but five prestigious awards by IPA,” remarked Greg Kniss, Managing Principal.

IPA’s annual Best of the Best recognition honors CPA firms across the country for their superior financial and operational performance based on more than 70 criteria. IPA’s annual rankings of the 300 largest firms in the U.S. are listed from the multi-billion-dollar Big 4 to firms of roughly $10 million in net revenue. The list includes firm headquarters, MP, net revenue, ranking in the previous year, and percentage change. The rankings are compiled from data gathered in the annual IPA Survey and Analysis of Firms, which attracts participation from nearly 600 firms.

IPA 100, 200 and 300 firms are ranked by U.S. net revenues and are compiled by analyzing the more than 550 responses received this year for IPA’s Survey and Analysis of Firms. This is IPA’s 28th annual ranking of the largest accounting firms in the nation.

In 1994, IPA began naming the top 50 Best of the Best Firms in the U.S., selected exclusively on their performance in specific areas of management, growth and strategic vision. The Best of the Best firms are some of the highest-performing public accounting firms in the country.
