Key info

Undoubtedly, COVID-19 has presented Australia’s business economy with some huge challenges. However, despite the events of FY21, the Xero community – comprising accountants and bookkeepers, ecosystem partners, small businesses and sole traders – has shown some incredible examples of innovation, leadership and creativity. And this year, that’s worth celebrating.

This year’s Xero Awards are all about recognising those who led positive change in the past financial year. The program uncovers the heart of why your business exists, how Xero brings value to you and your clients, and the future of your business. As well as company performance, our judging panel of diverse industry leaders will be looking at the cultures and practices that make day-to-day activities meaningful and purposeful.

To find out more about the awards, including award categories and criteria, head over to our Award Categories section. Here’s where you can nominate your firm, or your favourite Xero partner practice, app or small business for an award. Successful nominees will be recognised as our Xero Award FY22 winners.
