This is a Luca award for ‘best practice of the year’ representing the Oscars for bookkeepers!
The ICB Luca Awards are exclusive bronze statuettes of Luca Pacioli, the Cistercian monk who is credited with inventing the process of double entry bookkeeping. Luca Pacioli’s 1494 book, “Summa de Arithmetica, Geometria, Pproportioni et Proportionalità” contains the first written record of the process and warns of the need for good record keeping;
It quotes :-
“If you are in business and do not know all about it, your money will go like flies, that is, you will lose it.”
Luca Pacioli Cistercian monk
