Institute of Certified Bookkeepers

Reuniting the community and piecing together the brave new world of a professional bookkeeper!

The bookkeeping industry in Australia (in fact around the world) like many others have adapted to working remotely. But Bookkeeper after Bookkeeper tells us they want to reunite their community ties with ICB, our partners and each other.

The ICB Australian Bookkeepers Summit events are well known for our commitment to ongoing education, professional development and providing the practical application of business and bookkeeping knowledge and skills to make a positive difference, placing a professional bookkeeper as the expert in the middle of the noise.

Our agendas cover a wide range of topics, to inform, challenge and highlight the bookkeeping world. This event is open to all professional advisors that deliver bookkeeping and BAS Agent services in Australia including ICB members, non-members, BAS Agents and Bookkeepers, Students and Educator.


Trivia Champions:

We know bookkeepers aren't the slightest bit competitive, so let's have some fun and see who are the smartest cookies in the room! Nominate a table captain and table a name and win some fabulous prizes!

Only the best from three trivia rounds will survive!
