Of the Top 200 Accounting Firms in the U.S., Anders CPAs + Advisors comes in at #125 in the 2014 survey by The Platt Group, publishers of INSIDE Public Accounting (IPA).
In this fifth annual ranking of Beyond the IPA 100, this list picks up where the IPA 100 left off, and identifies the largest firms in the nation ranking from No. 101 to No. 200. Anders made its debut on the list in 2011 at 159. We ranked #157 in 2012 and #124 in 2013 following our merger.
For the most recent fiscal year, IPA 200 firms range in size from $14 million to $31 million, and from 60 to 235 staff. These firms employ over 12,000 staff members across the country, up 9% since a year ago.
Other statistics were up, too. The group averaged 5.4% top line growth, up from 4.3% in 2013 and 6.2% bottom line growth as compare to 3.7% one year earlier. In addition, similar to their IPA 100 peers, the IPA 200 are also engaged in acquisitions to grow in size, scope and capability, with 21 mergers reported for the group last year. Thirteen firms made their debut to the list.
More than 540 firms participated in the IPA annual Survey and Analysis of Firms this year, along with many CPA firm associations contributing to the search to identify the IPA 200.
