The SMSF Summit and Accounting Awards 2017, supported by principal partner SMSF Adviser, acknowledges hard work, passion, excellence and success across all facets of the accounting industry nationwide.

Winners of the 21 categories were announced to a crowd of more than 250 professionals at the Sofitel Sydney Wentworth on 2 November 2017.

It is our commitment to empower Australian businesses to provide opportunities for improvement, create jobs and help fellow Australians achieve the lifestyle they want. The winners and finalists should all be proud of their achievements.


The competition was tough but it was certainly great to see some of the accounting industry’s brightest talents recognised for their hard work. On behalf of Chan & Naylor, we would like to congratulate all of this year’s winners and finalists.
