The Luca Pacioli Accounting Awards

2020 Luca Awards

Nominations for the 2020 Luca Accounting Awards are now closed. Winners will be announced during SYNERGY Virtual Conference.

The Luca Awards are named after “The Father of Accounting”, Luca Pacioli. He was a monk, a magician, and a lover of numbers. Pacioli was both a domain expert and someone who saw the opportunity to harness new technologies.

Thanks to the newly invented printed press, his book, Summa de arithmetica, was mass produced in 1494 and his ideas spread all over the world. This book set the precedent for the modern accounting system firms use today as it introduced the concepts of ledgers, journals, and bookkeeping. He continued to contribute to modern day principles in accounting, economics, and mathematics his whole life, even when his home in Rome was taken over by the French in 1499. Our Luca Award winners are the 2020 heir to Luca Pacioli’s spirit of spirit of innovation and invention, despite the circumstances. They, too, have mastered accounting technology and proven themselves capable of thriving in new environments.

Award categories

  • Firm of the Year: This award goes to the firm that embraces Luca’s innovative spirit in transforming or improving their business.
  • Trailblazing Woman: This award aims to recognize up and coming female partners/female-owned firms.
  • Rookie of the Year: This award goes to the brand-new (within the last year) Thomson Reuters firm that had the most successful implementation of products and is also being represented at the SYNERGY conference for the first time.
  • Community Peer-Support: This award recognizes a member of the Thomson Reuters online customer Community for their diligent and generous help towards their peer tax practitioners via the Community platform.
  • Covid-19 Response Award: This award recognizes a member of the Thomson Reuters Community for their diligent and generous Pandemic response.
