Now in its eighteenth year, this impressive league table of businesses is published in the November edition of Kent Business.

In previous years the MegaGrowth 50 performance table has been put together based on the average turnover growth of privately owned businesses that have a minimum turnover of £1 million, as stipulated in full accounts registered at Companies House across the last four years.

Businesses with notable turnover growth over recent years that DO NOT register full accounts at Companies House will also be recognised by MegaGrowth 50.

If you want your business to receive the accolade of being a MegaGrowth 50 company and DO NOT currently register full accounts at Companies House you can nowapply to be considered.

Successful applicants will be announced and celebrated at a special breakfast presentation event held at Turkey Mill, Maidstone.

It’s always great to see Kent businesses doing well and the USP of the MegaGrowth 50 awards is that unlike other awards it picks up fantastic success stories of businesses who don’t ever shout about it. Kreston Reeves has been honoured to sponsor MegaGrowth 50 for the last 9 years and be part of recognising and awarding Kent and Medway businesses for their growth and making this a great place to do business.

For the last two years businesses were able to nominate themselves to be included and we are looking forward to seeing more coming forward for consideration this year.

Nigel Fright, Managing Partner, Kreston Reeves

It’s such a buzz when Kent MegaGrowth comes around. The performance of our SMEs and mid market business always amazes me although the element of surprise has diluted over time as one starts to appreciate the sustainable business models being employed. The county's most successful growing businesses are not increasing their revenue line by selling in a purely transactional manner.

They are adding value, building relationships and innovating. At asb law we "get this" and it has been really rewarding to build rapport with a number of MegaGrowth "stars" working at a strategic level and translating the sales success into shareholder value. The macro economics remain pretty tight, so in context, we should appreciate and applaud our growing businesses that do so much for jobs and GDP in Kent. I salute you!
