"[The Awards] are unique because they are entirely judged by the clients of those practices...Why don't you enter and just see what could happen?"


To be eligible for the NAB Professional Services Awards, your firm:

1. Must be an Australian Accounting, Bookkeeping, Law or Conveyancing firm*
2. Must have annual or expected annual revenue of under $30m in the FY2018

*Note: If your firm is a part of a franchise or network of firms which operate independently under a common brand, each practice must submit a separate application. For the purposes of your application to the 2018 Professional Services Awards, the individual practice’s revenue is relevant, not the total franchise or network revenue.

Categories & Judging

Professional Services


Firms are ranked based upon a weighted average of quantitative metrics and the sample size of a firm's respondents within a particular category.

While sample size requirements are dependent upon the competitiveness of an individual category, a good rule of thumb is to aim for over 30 respondents in a category to ensure you're in with a good chance.



Categories depend upon your clients. Client responses will be primarily segmented into Business and Private categories, depending upon the nature of the client's matter or project being surveyed.

There may be further segmentation of categories, and in some instances categories may be amalgamated. This will depend upon the volume of applicants and respondents in each category.
