National Award for Newcastle accounting firm DFK Crosbie
28th November 2018

Newcastle’s DFK Crosbie has taken out a national industry award that recognises the local firm of over 90 accountants and business advisers as one of the best professional services firms in Australia.
DFK Crosbie was declared Best Accounting Firm — Audit in the Professional Services Awards 2018 (Accounting Practice Area Awards).
It was a finalist in two more categories, Best Accounting Firm — Business Clients and Best Accounting Firm — NSW/ACT.
DFK Crosbie’s Audit team works closely with registered clubs and not-for-profits (NFPs), as well as government and high-turnover private businesses.
The auditing process ensures board members and decision makers can have peace of mind about the accuracy of the financial figures they’re given. Of course, this can influence their capacity to make the right decisions for their members and the community — decisions they’re responsible for morally and legally.
“We’re seriously proud to win this national award,” says Partner at DFK Crosbie and Audit specialist Shaun Mahony.
“It’s a great endorsement of our Audit service and the confidence it gives our clients.
“When you’re a board member or shareholder, for instance, you’re entitled to know whether the organisation’s figures are accurate. Not just because you have the financial results but because you also have a solid financial opinion that confirms you can rely on that data.”
The Professional Services Awards 2018 are run by an independent research company, FirmChecker, and supported by National Australia Bank.
The awards are based purely on client feedback, determined by a combination of a weighted average of client satisfaction metrics, sample size and sentiment analysis of qualitative comments.
