Finalists in this category an impressive five times, Shorts has the unrivalled achievement of being finalists for Large Firm of the Year four years in a row, and winners for two out of the last three years.  This is a tremendous achievement, which reflects the hard work and ongoing development of everyone within the team.


On announcing the results, the Xero judges commented:

"Shorts continues to go from strength to strength, innovating and building on their success as a firm each year. They have demonstrated impressive growth and efficiency gains across the judging period through further adoption of technology including the use of custom API integrations, allowing them to optimise for new revenue streams and provide improved services to clients. Their utilisation of Xero and the app ecosystem is second to none. What’s more, Shorts are committed to providing an excellent service to their clients, but also to building an impressive team culture. We’re proud to partner with the Shorts team, who are well-deserving winners of Xero’s Large Firm of the Year Award for 2024."
