Accounting Excellence Awards - entry deadline extended to 13 May
Now in its eighth year, the Accounting Excellence Awards continue to recognise the firms and individuals who are making great contributions to the profession.
This year there are 26 awards spread over three categories:
Practice This category looks for those accounting firms who are leading the way with forward-thinking, innovative ways to grow and are pushing the standards of excellence in the profession.
Software The software category is about celebrating the technology providers who go above and beyond in supporting accounting firms on their path of growth. ACCA firms use a variety of software providers and you are invited to help assess these awards by completing this survey to find the best accounting software providers.
Finance This year, we’ve added a new dimension to our awards programme to include accountants in business. This category will celebrate the vital contribution that finance teams and leaders make to businesses across the UK.
In 2017 ACCA members and their firms were well represented across shortlisted categories. Winning brings recognition for your practice, its staff and the high levels of service you provide your clients. Awards host Rachel Riley recently interviewed ACCA's Glenn Collins and asked why firms and individuals benefit from entering. Watch now.
