Yorkshire is home to a thriving accountancy profession. These awards were developed to celebrate this incredible community, and the achievements and successes of the region’s best and brightest.


We had a fantastic response and dozens of submissions for our independent judging panel to review. The debates were fierce and the results close, but these organisations and individuals shone through and we’re pleased to be able to recognise them as 2022 finalists.


The categories are arranged in the order they will be announced during the ceremony. Click on each tab to reveal the finalists.
