Welsh Accountancy business Mazuma has scored a triple whammy of award nominations in the FinTech Awards Wales and the Finance Awards Wales.
The awards reward excellence and innovation in Finance and FinTech in Wales, looking at the creative thinkers and innovators who are driving growth and positive change in their businesses.
Mazuma, based in Bridgend, is the UK’s leading online accountancy firm for freelancers and micro businesses.
It combines the technology of online accountancy via their proprietory tech (MazApp) with a human-focused approach, making things simple and clear for clients and being a friendly ear for the self-employed and business owners.
Mazuma is nominated for FinTech Company of the year and is up against heavyweights like Confused.com. The award is sponsored by Cardiff Capital Region.
Lucy said: “It’s an honour to be selected as one of the finalists in these awards, particularly in a category with such well established and innovative businesses.”
“It’s a testament to our whole team that we’ve been able to realise our vision and create our own technology (called MazApp) that can take a pile of receipts and turn it into a set of Statutory Accounts in under an hour. To have achieved this against the backdrop of the pandemic is even more exciting.”
Not only is Mazuma in the running for a prestigious award, but two of its staff have also been named as finalists.
Chartered accountant Stephanie Collins, Mazuma’s Head of Professional Standards is a finalist for Accountant of the Year, while long-standing member of staff Bryony Ham is a finalist in the category of Accounting Technician of the Year.
Upon learning of her nomination, Stephanie said “I’m speechless. I never thought I’d be nominated, let alone become a finalist!”.
These nominations come upon the back of a successful year for Mazuma with around 20% growth and a series of new jobs being created at the company.
The winners are due to be announced at awards ceremonies in Cardiff on September 3rd and 23rd.
