Celebrate International Accountants Day

Recognise your trusted accounting professional staff.

In brief

  • International Accountants Day is celebrated each year on 10 November
  • Accounting is vital to business success
  • Take the time to celebrate the valuable work accountants do

International Accountants Day, which is celebrated on 10 November each year, is an opportunity to acknowledge the great work accountants do to make businesses thrive, support the economy, and help people navigate the complexities of finance.

Chartered Accountants ANZ marks International Accountants Day (sometimes known as International Accounting Day) each year with a social media campaign to raise the awareness and visibility of CA members and highlight the difference they make in their communities.

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."

It's an opportunity to recognise the great work accountants do to make businesses thrive, support the economy, and help navigate people through the complexities of finance.
