With guests drawn from the profession, government and business, the annual LUCA Awards are an unmissable opportunity to gain recognition for your achievements.

The Awards

The LUCA Awards will take place on Tuesday 29th November. This year, coinciding with its 20th anniversary, ICB has been invited by the Lord Mayor to host its ceremony at the Mansion House in the City of London.

The LUCA Awards are the ‘Oscars’ of the bookkeeping profession and are presented in recognition of the year’s outstanding bookkeepers and the many organisations that complement the valuable work that they do. Each winner is presented with a Luca Award by HRH Prince Michael of Kent. The Luca Awards are exclusive statuettes of Luca Pacioli, the Cistercian monk who is credited with inventing the process of double entry bookkeeping that endures today.


The LUCA Awards recognise outstanding achievement in the profession. If you know of anyone who has made an exceptional contribution to bookkeeping this year or feel they deserve recognition, now’s your opportunity to tell us about it! Alternatively, if you feel that you deserve acknowledgement of your achievements why not nominate yourself! Winning a LUCA can provide you or your business with a huge prestige boost. Previous winners have spoken of the transformative effect the award had on both how clients and employers viewed them and how they viewed themselves professionally.
