“With this in mind, we’ve introduced a few new categories including ‘New Firm of the Year’ which is open to newly established accountancy or tax firms who have been running for five years or less.

“This is a great opportunity for new businesses to gain exposure, show how much they’ve grown and give us a glimpse of what we can expect from the future.

“We want to encourage a new generation of finance professionals to the event by supporting and celebrating new businesses.”

Award categories include Accounting Technician of the Year, Rising Star Accountant of the Year, Rising Star Tax Adviser of the Year, Accountant of the Year, Finance Director of the Year, Business Finance Team of the Year, Corporate Finance Deal of the Year, Public Services Finance Team of the Year, Tax Team of the Year, New Firm of the Year, Independent Accountancy Firm of the Year and National Accountancy Firm of the Year.
