The six categories are: Accountancy Rising Star; Accountancy Rising Star (in practice); Accountancy Firm of the Year; Best Newcomer; Innovation Award and RBS Business of the Year.

The winners of the highly coveted awards will be announced at a special black-tie dinner held at Ribby Hall Village on Thursday 24th November 2011.

These awards have been made possible thanks to generous sponsorship from Royal Bank of Scotland; AFR Consulting; Norwest Recruit; Napthens Solicitors; Taylor Patterson and UCLan. The event is also supported by Begbies Traynor and Lancashire Business View magazine.

Les Bury, President of the North West Society of Chartered Accountants, said: “In tougher economic conditions it’s even more important to get behind our local businesses and celebrate their success.

“There are a number of extremely talented individuals and successful companies across both Lancashire and Cumbria and these awards provide an ideal platform to showcase their achievements”.
