INSIDE Public Accounting announces launch of annual benchmarking survey

Each year, INSIDE Public Accounting (IPA) provides rankings for the Top 100 firms, the Best of the Best, and All-Star firms. 2011 marks the 21st year for the IPA survey. In addition to the other rankings, beginning in 2010, IPA ranked the Top 200 firms in the U.S. 
IPA is now soliciting participation in the annual rankings. Participating firms can not only provide input which will be critical to benchmarking, but they also qualify for awards and recognitions that can be beneficial in marketing and recruiting.  Firm size is not a criterion for being named an IPA Best of the Best, IPA All-Star, or Fastest-Growing firm. 


The deadline for inclusion in the 2011 survey is June 10, 2011.  Contact IPA directly to obtain the survey, or download the survey. Extensions of time for survey completion can be requested by contacting IPA at (317) 733-1920.
All participating firms will receive a complimentary copy of the Top 100 issue of INSIDE Public Accounting, along with an executive summary of the IPA National Benchmarking Report. The 2010 Executive Summary and the 2010 Top 100 and Top 200 lists are available for downloading. IPA will announce the 2011 lists in the fall

There is no fee to participate and all survey data is secure and held confidential.  For more information, visit
