Innovator of the Year


Innovative businesses, at a time of intense disruption and evolution, are capitalising on the ever-growing opportunities in the accounting industry and securing their success as long-term players.

This award recognises the most innovative business in the accounting industry in Australia, acknowledging the business that best developed and capitalised on innovation during the 2017 calendar year.

All relevant types of innovation will be considered – whether related to service, business development processes, technology, staff/client management or any other area.


This award is open to all businesses which have a focus on accounting-based services in Australia. It is based on the period from 1 January 2017 to 31 December 2017.


  • Highlight the innovation undertaken within the business in 2017 and detail why this is a new development or way of thinking/operating.
  • Demonstrate how the innovation has improved the business (not just in terms of financial gains).
  • Highlight the rationale or development behind the innovation and how it has overcome/addressed a problem or perceived opportunity.
  • Provide case studies or examples that support the success of the innovation, where relevant.
