Julie and Gemma attended the ICB annual summit last week, which was full of lots of training, anything to do with client confidentiality and getting ahead of the game with all things bookkeeping.
They then joined the team at the ICB Awards where BIB went on to take home two awards!
Team BIB welcome Amelia to the team as a Traniee Bookkeeper.

Whilst this year we did not win an award, to be shortlisted again is still an amazing achievement and an attribute to the fantastic status that Bookkeepers in Buckingham now holds in the bookkeeping profession.
Bookkeepers in Buckingham (BiB) does it again! For the 3rd year running we have been shortlisted for 2 LUCA awards. On a cold November night team BiB head of to the Lord Mayors House for the annual awards.
The winners of the 7th Annual LUCA Awards were announced at the ICB Global Annual Dinner & Awards Ceremony on Tuesday 29th November at Mansion House, London. The awards were presented by His Royal Highness Prince Michael of Kent GCVO, ICB Global’s Royal Patron.
The winners were:
Employed Bookkeeper of the Year: Rahana Iqball-Raffell, Bookkeepers in Buckingham Ltd
Rahana, or Rah as we affectionately call her, walked away with the 4th LUCA award that BiB has been awarded in the space of 3 years. Rah has only been with us just over a year but in that time has become fully qualified and is now an invaluable member of our team.

We have our fingers crossed as Laurie Austen goes head to head against Carolyn Charman, nominated by Guilford Town Centre Chaplaincy for ‘Employed Bookkeeper of the Year’.
Julie Austen Founder of Bookkeepers in Buckingham Ltd is also up to win ‘Employer of the Year’ as she goes up against Clark Howes & Moore Stephens.
