Nexia TS Wins the Innovation Award in the Singapore Accountancy Awards 2016: Celebrating Excellence in Accountancy

August 2016


Nexia TS announced that it has been named the recipient for the high-profile Innovation Award (Large Practice Category) under the Business Excellence Awards, as part of the Singapore Accountancy Awards 2016, held at Marina Bay Sands Expo and Convention Centre on 25 August 2016. In receiving this nation-wide award, Nexia TS was recognised for its excellence in innovative initiatives and practices in the accounting sector.



Organised biennially by the Institute of Singapore Chartered Accountants (ISCA) and supported by the Accounting and Corporate Regulatory Authority (ACRA) and the Singapore Accountancy Commission (SAC), the Singapore Accountancy Awards aim to celebrate excellence in the accountancy sector to recognise outstanding practices and individuals in the profession.


The Innovation Award seeks to distinguish the nominees from their competitors based on innovative initiatives adopted by the practice to enhance the quality of their services, or to provide unique services that distinguish them from their competitors. It recognises multi-faceted, dynamic, client-centric, and trusted attributes of the finest performers at the peak of their profession.


Each shortlisted nominee was assessed on new and innovative approaches or initiatives that were introduced and how it enhanced the overall quality of services provided. The processes were evaluated based on how they were streamlined or improved and how they impacted the business with these changes. Nominees were also judged based on the adoption of technology to improve business operations and services offered to existing and new clients. New service lines introduced are also evaluated based on how they have complemented existing services and their contributions to revenue growth.


“Winning this award is a great moment and a significant milestone in our firm’s history. It also demonstrates our commitment in our efforts to build an innovative culture where we strive relentlessly to continue to serve and support both our clients and staff better. With a clear strategy to innovate through the years, we have experienced quantifiable, tangible benefits in terms of technology, product and market-led innovation changes. Clients and staff who are connected to us experience efficiency and productivity through process improvements and new service offerings.  Through the Singapore Accountancy Awards, I hope that this award platform will continue to inspire firms and individuals to press on in their innovation and keep on challenging the status quo at every stage of their business. Special credits go to all staff who had made this possible, and I would also like to thank our clients for their confidence and support all these years.”

 Henry Tan, Managing Director, Nexia TS
