A leading accountancy practice has marked the achievement of 48 colleagues who have completed 25 or more years of service with the company.

The long-serving staff were recognised by accountants and business advisers Duncan & Toplis during a team meeting at the Lincolnshire Showground.

Adrian Reynolds, managing director, said: “We employ 350 staff in 10 offices and it is outstanding that nearly 50 of our colleagues have completed a quarter of a century of service with us.

“The firm prides itself on maintaining employee satisfaction and the fact that so many staff have spent such a long period of their life working here is testament to our success in this area. ”

Duncan & Toplis staff who complete 15, 25 and 40 years of service are presented with a Duncan & Toplis lapel pin and a gift of their choice up to a specified value.

For 15 years the pin is silver, for 25 years it is gold and for 40 years it is silver with a ruby stone.

Among the long servers are Richard Hardy and Tom Hindmarch from the company’s office in All Saints’ Street, in Stamford.

Duncan & Toplis was named last month by Accountancy Age as one of the UK’s top 10 employers in the accounting sector. The 2015 Accountancy Age Best Employer Survey identifies the best accounting firms to work for in the UK. Surveys were completed by employers and employees. The winner will be announced in November.
