Local accounting firm McConachie Stedman has been selected as a finalist in five categories at the 2019 Australian Accounting Awards, hosted by Accountants Daily. The Australian Accounting Awards, in partnership with Intuit QuickBooks Australia, is the only national independent awards program for the accounting industry. Recognising excellence across a true cross-section of the accounting industry, the awards celebrate the contributions of both individuals and firms who are leading the way.

McConachie Stedman has been named a finalist in the Professional Development Program of the Year, Marketing Program of the Year, Superannuation Specialist Accountant of the Year, Auditor of the Year and Accounting Support Staff of the Year categories. This finalist list features more than 270 accounting professionals and firms across 32 categories.

Firm Director Ben Horner said, “We are so pleased to be recognised by the Australian Accounting Awards with finalists in five categories across our firm. Having finalists in each of these categories is reflective of the dedication and hard work of our team members across all office locations.”

Head of Editorial at Momentum Media Katarina Taurian says, “To a group of people who prioritise their clients and professionalism above all else, sincere congratulations from myself and the team at Accountants Daily. As well as recognising exemplary skill and innovation, this year’s awards program celebrates the impact of accountants on the health, wellbeing and lifestyle of their clients and employees. The material impact of an accountant in the lives of their clients should be sung from the rooftops, and Accountants Daily is proud to do that for the accounting profession.”

The winners will be announced at a black-tie gala awards ceremony on Friday, 24 May at The Star Sydney.
