Judging of the Scottish Accountancy and Financial Technology Awards is conducted by an independent panel of experts. Research is carried out by Edinburgh Napier University's Business School which is deemed to be one of the largest and most modern Business Schools in Scotland, with more than 30 years of working closely with public, private and voluntary sectors.

Once a nomination has been submitted, a questionnaire will be sent out for completion followed by a short listing by our panel of experts. The information provided will be collated by the research team at the Edinburgh Napier University Business School. If the nominated company/individual moves forward to the next stage, representatives will be invited to attend an interview in front of the judging panel on Wednesday 1st May 2019. Judging for all award categories is extremely thorough and will be carried out following the nomination closing date of Friday 29th March 2019.
