Following on from a successful event in 2014, this year Reckon have again partnered with AccountantsDaily for the 2015 Australian Accounting Awards.
The Australian Accounting Awards are the only industry awards designed to showcase excellence right across the accounting profession. With a broad range of categories that examine excellence across the breadth of the profession, the Australian Accounting Awards provides a platform for all industry leaders to be recognised.
Reckon’s Managing Director Sam Allert said “The Awards are extremely valuable and I encourage individuals and firms to put themselves forward now that nominations have opened. It provides them a rare opportunity to be recognised in a national Accounting Awards program, whether they be a newly qualified accountant, experienced bookkeeper or fast growing firm – there is an award category for them.
Allert continued, “The strength of the profession lies in its diversity, with a range of individuals and companies contributing to its ongoing success. The depth of the 2015 Awards program is impressive and will uniquely recognise industry achievements”.
Alex Whitlock, publisher of AccountantsDaily, was enthusiastic about the industry response to the Australian Accounting Awards.
“The response to the Australian Accounting Awards was staggering last year. We were inundated with submissions and it was clear that there is great scope to expand the awards this year,” he said.
“This is a big industry; there are so many outstanding professionals and firms across the spectrum. It’s important that we host awards that recognise as many of the top performers as possible.”
