Institute of Certified Bookkeepers

Let's #RaiseACup to raise a voice for the bookkeeping community and its integral role in small business success

Global Bookkeeping Week (GBW) will continue for its fourth year running, and be held from November 19 – 23. The aim of this initiative is to communicate with small businesses of the value in engaging with a bookkeeper, and to celebrate the bookkeeping journey and its advancement over the past years.

This year ICB will will not only celebrate bookkeepers, but we will also explore and eliminate the misconception that the bookkeeping industry is becoming obsolete. With this aim in mind, ICB have developed a short industry insights survey to help understand the current perceptions towards the bookkeeping industry, and whether business owners truly understand the role (and value) of today's bookkeeper.


Have your say in the ongoing discussion


We are proud to lead this celebration of bookkeepers alongside our partners, members and supported businesses. We have a fantastic week lined up to bring bookkeepers together, demonstrating the global presence and significance of this progressive community. We're encouraging you to take some time during Global Bookkeeping Week, to celebrate your own personal growth and the achievements you’ve made as a bookkeeper.

Global Bookkeeping Week serves to acknowledge and celebrate the work of good bookkeeping. Whether your bookkeeper is yourself, on your team or a contracted professional; good bookkeeping is at the core of every good business. Good bookkeeping anticipates business needs and implements the most efficient technology and business solutions best suited for that business. - Matthew Addision, ICB Executive Chairman

Watch this space as we release a series of events and promotions we will be rolling out in preparation for celebrating all things bookkeeping! #GlobalBookkeepingWeek
