Accounting is vital to business success, so taking the time to mark the occasion is an important signal to your team and the broader business community. Your celebration can be as big or as small as suits you, your business and your local COVID-19 restrictions. Here are a few ideas on how you may choose to celebrate:

  • Host a digital showcase for your non-accounting staff, demonstrating the valuable work Chartered Accountants do for your business, or highlight the wins your CAs have delivered for your business internally through your company email or intranet
  • Arrange an event to celebrate International Accountants Day and share knowledge or inform the business of the role accountants play in your business
  • Take photos or videos of your team thanking your accounting staff for their great work, or of your accounting team celebrating a business win
  • Post photos to your business social media accounts congratulating employees who have newly become Chartered Accountants
  • Share photos or video of International Accountants Day activities on your business social media and internal channels.
  • Attend networking or CPD events for accounting professionals to connect with like-minded accountants and further your knowledge

The 10 November date commemorates the day in 1494 that Venetian mathematician Luca Bartolomeo de Pacioli published his critical work Summa de arithmetica, geometria, proportioni et proportionalita, which translates to "everything about arithmetic, geometry and proportion", and included analysis and documentation of bookkeeping practices. This publication was the foundation for further advancement of accounting and positioned de Pacioli as "The Father of Accounting."
