Entries into the Top Accounting features have been extended.

In Brief

  • Entries for the 2018 Top Accounting Firms features have been extended. Be quick to enter your firm.
  • The lists will benchmark firms based on revenue, pro bono hours, gender diversity and innovation.
  • Lists and supporting editorial will be published in November.

Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand (CA ANZ) is the exclusive sponsor of the 2018 Australian Financial Review (AFR) and New Zealand Sunday Star-Times (SST) Top Accounting Firms features. The two campaigns – one in Australia and the other in New Zealand - seek to benchmark accounting firms of all kinds, as well as highlight the richness and diversity of the accounting profession.

All accounting firms are invited to participate in the AFR and SST survey containing questions on annual revenue, growth and diversity drivers. Data from participating firms will be used to determine the revenue-based Top 100 Accounting Firms in Australia and the Top 30 Accounting Firms in New Zealand. 

The central lists will be complemented by a series of sub-lists ranking firms on the amount of pro bono hours per partner, number of females in senior leadership, the top firms per region and the most innovative firms under five years old. 

The campaigns provide an opportunity to highlight accounting’s contribution to the prosperity of business and wider society. Survey insights will also support editorial content bringing to life the trends, insights and unique stories of firms and individuals within the profession. 

The Top Accounting Firms lists and supporting editorial content will be launched in November through special print editions of the AFR and the New Zealand SST, as well as dedicated websites with interactive survey insights. 

We encourage all members to enter their firms into the features. 

Australian firms can enter here and New Zealand firms can enter here.

Entries have been extended. Be quick to enter your firm before entries close Wednesday 19 September at 5pm NZ time.
