It is very positive news to hear that AVN for Accountants in Derbyshire have launched a new award which is being introduced to recognise the outstanding contribution that many accountancy practices have made during the coronavirus pandemic.
Excellence In Challenging Times Award
The “Excellence In Challenging Times” award will put a spotlight on the unsung heroes in the accountancy industry, ensuring that the help they have provided businesses and organisations throughout this present crisis does not go unnoticed.
One of the main jobs accountants have had to do is to keep businesses informed of the rapidly changing climate with regard to what loans, tax relief and grants are available to apply for in their particular sector of the economy and how to apply for them.
Getting Funding To Help Businesses Survive
On the Response Source website AVN Managing Director Shane Lukas is quoted as saying: “
“We know that accountants have worked hard for their clients. They’ve stayed awake at night figuring out how best to help clients in need.
“They’ve worked long hours; they’ve been their support and counsel; they’ve worked their hardest to get the funding to help them survive and given advice to help them adapt and once-again, thrive.
“Taking stock and considering the wonderful difference accountants have made is important. It’s easy to keep battling on. I believe they need to take time out to consider the impact they’re having.”
It’s not just the businesses themselves that accountants have saved during this crisis.
“Every business is someone’s ‘baby’ and it’s devastating for them to lose it. Every business supports at least one family; lives are affected by business. Every business matters and accountants have made a difference through their support and help.
“To enter the award, we simply want your stories. Tell us about the clients you’ve been there for, what you did for them and the difference it made. You deserve to be recognised. Indeed, the accounting profession deserves to be recognised.”
