Individual categories are on offer for academics, accounting consultants and students, auditors, bookkeepers, partners, rising stars, mentors, superannuation auditors and specialist accountants, and thought leaders.

The highest-scoring individual winner will receive the prestigious Excellence Award.

Group categories cover bookkeeping firms, boutique firms, business advisory firms, networks, innovators, SMSF firms, start-ups, and organisations that offer exceptional diversity and inclusion programs and wellness initiatives.

Since its inception in 2014, the Australian Accounting Awards has been the most anticipated awards program of the year for the tax profession.

The unparalleled program identifies the best and brightest professionals in the accounting industry, while pinpointing professional development and innovation.

By gaining national recognition, finalists and winners could distinguish themselves from their peers and strengthen their position in the industry by elevating their personal brand, which could unlock new career opportunities.

Furthermore, they will be provided with press coverage, interviews, professional photos, and exclusive collateral, paving the way for them to promote themselves and their businesses as one of the top performers in Australia.
