Wilmington, DE – September 8, 2016 — For the second consecutive year, Delaware-based certified public accounting firm, Belfint, Lyons & Shuman, CPAs (BLS), was ranked a Top 300 firm in the nation by INSIDE Public Accounting (IPA). IPA is an award-winning publication for the accounting profession, published by The Platt Group. BLS also moved up the list from 270 in 2015 to 262 in 2016.

The IPA Top 300 is determined through IPA’s Benchmarking Report, which is known to be one of the most thorough, complete and insightful analyses of CPA firms in the U.S. Each year, accounting firms across North America complete an in-depth financial and operational survey. The data is then used to compile the annual ranking of the nation’s largest accounting firms. The report is well-respected throughout the profession for being independent, accurate and confidential.

“BLS is honored to be part of this elite group of accounting firms,” stated Michael T. French, CPA, Managing Director. “Having earned Top 300 status again, and even moving up the list, validates the hard work performed by all of our team members throughout the year.
