Winners revealed: the Optus My Business Awards 2016

Winners are grinners, and there was no shortage of happy faces on the SME community’s night of nights. Check out the full list of winners from this year’s awards.

With 214 finalists representing 150 businesses over 24 categories, the Optus My Business Awards 2016 was a sell-out event. Hosted on Friday, 18 November at Sydney’s Four Points by Sheraton hotel, the evening was filled with plenty of fun, frivolity and excitement – as well as a few tears.

There could only be one winner per category, and only one of these winners could take home the My Business – Business of the Year award.

Without further ado, My Business is pleased to announce this year’s winners. Congratulations to everyone who entered and particularly to all the winners and finalists, who demonstrated outstanding achievement in their respective fields.

Accountants have long provided both accounting expertise and investment advice to Self Managed Super Funds, but that era will come to an end on June 30, 2018. That’s when the “accountant’s exemption” to the 2016 financial advice licensing reforms expires. From then on, it will be illegal for accountants to advise their clients on investment decisions unless they hold a licence in their own right. As a result, accountants are now grappling with how to retain the business of setting up, structuring and maintaining their clients’ SMSFs while not saying anything that looks, sounds or smells like advice. Andrew Ward, managing director of online platform SelfWealth, believes his “social network for investors and trading solution” solves the problem.
