MANCHESTER, N.H. (February 20, 2020) – Baker Newman Noyes announced today the firm has been named to Forbes’ first-ever list of America’s Top Recommended Tax & Accounting Firms. BNN is the only full-service Maine-based firm on the list recommended for both tax and accounting services and is one of just 90 firms nationwide recommended for both service categories, out of the total 227 firms listed.

In creating the list, Forbes partnered with data analysis and market research firm Statista to survey more than 1,800 CPAs, enrolled agents, tax attorneys, accountants and CFOs from across the United States on both the tax/accounting firm and client company sides.

Participants who worked for a tax or accounting firm could name up to ten firms for tax and ten firms for accounting that they would recommend if their company were not able to take on a client. Survey participants who worked in a company on the client side were asked to name up to ten firms each in tax and accounting that they would recommend based on their professional experience during the last three years. The firms that received the most recommendations were eligible for inclusion on the list, pending verification of eligibility by Statista. Self-recommendations were not considered.

“It is incredibly rewarding and validating to be recommended by our peers, clients, and the Forbes community in this way,” said Dayton Benway, managing principal of Baker Newman Noyes. “Earning our clients’ trust is what motivates us to deliver exceptionally responsive service, and their satisfaction is our greatest measure of success.”

In addition to the Forbes List of America’s Top Recommended Tax & Accounting Firms, BNN was recognized as a “Best of Accounting” firm for client satisfaction in 2019 by independent ranking firm ClearlyRated, and received a Net Promoter Score of 81 against an industry average NPS score of 24.
