Institute of Certified Bookkeepers

Luca PacioliThis year marks the 525th Anniversary of when Luca Pacioli (aka “The Father of Accounting and Bookkeeping”) published the Summa de arithmetica, one of the first known books that contained information on double-entry bookkeeping.

For Global Bookkeeping Week we are taking the opportunity to look back on the history of bookkeeping,
reflect on recent changes to the industry and celebrate how far we’ve come as a global community.
We invite you to share your own personal journey and join us in raising a cup to this valuable profession.





How you can celebrate Global Bookkeeping Week!

Free Network Meetings

This year we are offering free attendance at all member network meetings throughout November. You are invited to attend and enjoy complementary refreshments, network with ICB members who are local bookkeepers and BAS agents and discuss current industry news and updates. This is a great opportunity to come along and see how engaging and supportive the ICB networking meeting groups are.

Global Webinar

We will be hosting a series of webinars between November 18 – 22 at no cost, open for all bookkeepers, students, educators, business owners and current ICB members. The webinars will cover a variety of topics such as practice management, current industry challenges and triumphs, technical bookkeeping support and more. Full details will be released over the coming weeks so watch this space.



Each year tens of thousands of bookkeepers across the globe take time out of their busy schedules to come together and raise a cup to their profession in recognition of the value they bring to the micro and small business world. We encourage you to post a photo of yourself, your clients or even your pets raising a cup to bookkeepers and we will share them across our social pages! Have some fun, get creative and show your support to the community. Just make sure to use the #GlobalBookkeepingWeek and #RaiseACup hashtags and tag @icbaustralia on social media.
