The Financial Reporting (FiRe) Awards is an annual event organized by ICPAU in partnership with CMA, USE and New vision (the media sponsor). The Awards, which will be running for the ninth time this year, have encouraged honest and transparent communication of financial and business information since 2011.
The Awards are open to all organisations/ entities that prepare an annual report: financial institutions, trading companies, government departments and agencies, and not-for-profit bodies including charities. The overall aim of the Awards is to enhance the quality of financial and business reporting in Uganda by encouraging the implementation of financial reporting standards as well as other best practices in reporting. The annual event contributes to ongoing improvement in the quality of reporting.
