East Anglian accountants and business advisors, Larking Gowen, has been shortlisted in the Best Rural Professional Services category of the Rural Business Awards for the eastern region.

“We’re delighted to have made the shortlist for this prestigious award,” says Larking Gowen Partner, Ashley Smith. “This is a real pat on the back for the team. I’m delighted their expertise and commitment have been recognised in this way. We have been advising rural businesses since we were founded in 1888, and are now one of the largest agricultural accounting specialists in the UK. In fact, we’ve supported many clients through generations.”

Now in their fourth year, the Rural Business Awards, in partnership for the first time with Amazon, recognise the contribution of rural businesses to the regional and national economy. Award categories reward excellence in manufacturing, food and drink, retail, education and training, among others, as well as rural professional services.

“Each year, the Rural Business Awards highlight the strength and diversity of rural businesses here in the East,” says Ashley.  “In our work, we see that sense of shared community and support everywhere. We’re proud to be in the company of such outstanding businesses from our region.”

The winner of each category will be announced at a ceremony in October at Trinity Park in Ipswich.  Finalists will be put forward to the national awards, and winners announced early in 2019.
