Last month, we let you know how excited Imagine Accounting – a Chatswood Accountant Business was to be nominated as a finalist in the Accountant Services category of the 2019 Australian Small Business Champion Awards.
From over 60 entries, only 16 accounting firms were named as finalists. To be amongst the top few felt like a real honour.
Being nominated as a small business awards finalist confirmed that our dedication to being the best small business accountant in Chatswood has been recognised.
However, we were crossing our fingers that our continued efforts to go above and beyond for our clients would bring even greater recognition.
The Small Business Champions Award Night (and our big surprise)
The National Presentation evening of the Australian Small Business Champions Awards is an exclusive event held at The Star and is always a memorable affair.
Attending is a really exciting opportunity and we were so pleased to be rubbing shoulders with elite members of the Australian small business community. Over 1000 people attended the sold-out event, which was hosted by Channel Nine’s Peter Overton.
Stepping out on a night like this was a huge highlight for Mark Williams (Managing Director) and Joshua Navarro (Client Director) who are not used to glitz and glamour… so you can imagine how completely surprised they were when Imagine Accounting was named as Champion Accounting Services for 2019.
That’s right, WE WON!
Imagine Accounting is officially Champion Accounting Services of the Year for 2019.
The ‘Oscars of Small Business’
The Australian Small Business Champion Awards is the only national recognition program for Australian small businesses. The program aims to recognise outstanding Australian small businesses and encourage high standards of excellence in small business practice.
Receiving this award is such a fantastic gratification for the team at Imagine Accounting. The honour reflects the hard work and dedication we put in, not only to be successful ourselves, but to ensure our clients are always completely satisfied with the outcomes we provide for them.
Right now, we are so proud to be named as the best accountant, not only in Chatswood but in the whole country. This win makes us determined to spend the next twelve months becoming even better.
As the Awards state, despite the winners coming from a diverse range of backgrounds and industries, “The common trait is the dedication, vision and passion which make Australian small businesses great.”
The values of these ‘Oscars of Small Business’ reflect our own. These include service, commitment, leadership, endurance, courage, innovation and performance.
A win for our clients
It is by sticking to the above values that we are able to offer other small businesses not only good financial management but the opportunity to establish ongoing security for themselves, their staff and their families.
As our client Benjamin Pike recently explained, “I have been a client of Imagine for 9 years (and have experienced) fantastic service the entire time. Even though they are a larger practice now, I still feel that I get the same care and attention as I did 9 years ago.”
Another client Adam Meredith recently wrote a Google Review –
“If you want an outstanding successful business/accounting experience, with more legal money in your pocket at the end of every financial year – SEE THESE GUYS!!!
If you want intelligent, meaningful tax advice, with fast, polite and respectful interactions that actually helps your bottom line – SEE THESE GUYS!!!
I have been in business for 18 years and currently own and operate 3 small business’s in Sydney, with a staff of 20. I have had 5 accountants in my business life. I have had one owner accountants and I have used Sydney’s top accounting firms with a team looking after my affairs. And have been disappointed on all 5 occasions. Thankfully I am with Imagine Accounting – a Chatswood Accountant now and I will be with them until my business exit strategy is executed, under their expert guidance. Call these guys now – do yourself a favor.”
We truly believe in being more than a basic accounting service. Our clients’ best interests are top of mind in every encounter and all we do. And the results… well, they speak for themselves!
A huge, huge thank you to the judges of the Australian Small Business Champion Awards for reviewing every application and determining our business to be the best accounting service in Australia. As always, we would also like to sincerely thank our clients and strategic partners for their incredible support.
