We are so lucky to be working with such great people; from our wonderful clients to our associates and partners who all play a big part in the work we do.

What are the ICB Global Luca Awards?

The LUCA Awards are the ‘Oscars’ of the bookkeeping profession and are presented in recognition of the year’s outstanding bookkeepers and the many organisations that complement the valuable work that they do.

The LUCA Awards are exclusive statuettes of Luca Pacioli, the Cistercian monk who is credited with inventing the process of double entry bookkeeping that endures today.
