The awards ceremony, which will mark Accountancy Age’s 30th anniversary, will take place at the Natural History Museum on 3 November. It will showcase the achievements of accountants in all parts of the UK from the Big Five to the smallest firm, from FTSE 100 companies to the smallest enterprise and throughout the public sector.
Categories include large, medium and small firms of the year, public sector achievement, finance director and finance team of the year. The newest members of the profession will be eligible to enter for either trainee or new accountant of the year.
There are awards too for the best annual report and accounts, accounting software package of the year and best recruitment advertisement.
