TORONTO, Canada – February 7, 2019
Stern Cohen has won ClearlyRated’s 2019 Best of Accounting Award! This is the third consecutive win for us, making Stern Cohen a clear winner when it comes to client satisfaction.
This award is not purchased. Best of Accounting award winners earn the distinction based solely on a third-party, statistically-valid survey of a majority of the firm’s clients. The award is based on established industry benchmarks and the recognized metric known as Net Promoter Score (or NPS). The annual survey is carried out by Inavero and must pass strict data validation requirements.
Stern Cohen’s 2019 award is based on the results of our most recent wide-scale client survey carried out over two weeks in October 2018.
Since 2016, we have been surveying our clients annually. Each year, we earned “exceptional” ratings (based on accounting industry averages). In the 2018 survey, Stern Cohen achieved the highest ratings and participation rates to date! (see chart below)
At Stern Cohen, we believe it’s good business to seek our clients’ feedback on our services and to find out if they would recommend us to others in their network. We also find it extremely encouraging to know our clients recognize the value we provide.
Finally, with so many accounting firms to choose from in the Greater Toronto Area, being able to see a firm’s client ratings is greatly reassuring to those who are looking for a new accounting provider. Many businesses promise great client service. Our annualized survey backs up that claim!
“Outstanding results and intelligent, practical advice. Informative and accurate monthly packages that help us to make the right decisions. Higher level tasks (such as Review Engagement year end statements) effectively carried out and well worth the investment in Stern Cohen’s capable hands.”

When the winners were announced, Stern Cohen Managing Partner Michael McCleave shared the following message to Stern Cohen team members: “I would like to thank every member of the firm, as we could not have earned this rating without everyone providing the best possible service to our clients. It’s a great achievement!”
