Today, during his main stage session at Scaling New Heights, Small Business Segment Accountant Marketing Director Luis Sanchez announced the upcoming 2016 Global Search for the Firms of the Future. The contest, which is slated to launch mid-June, is an extension of last year’s successful Firm of the Future Search in the United States. It will offer the top accounting firms worldwide the chance to win over $100,000 in prizes, including multiple cash prizes and all-expense paid trips to Intuit’s® annual QuickBooks Connect conference, October 24-26, in San Jose, California.

A panel of qualified judges, including Jim McGinnis and Intuit Accountant Segment senior leaders, will select up to 20 firms who best embody the Firm of the Future practices, including leveraging the cloud to become clients’ trusted advisors and transform their practices using digital and social media practices. Finalists will be announced in August, and then a public vote will select the top winner. The top five global finalists will receive a free trip to QuickBooks Connect, where the grand prize winner will be announced.

The Firm of the Future website, which curates actionable step-by-step guides and resource links developed by Intuit and key industry leaders, is a platform of content where accounting professionals can start their journey toward becoming a Firm of the Future.
