Partner referral competition details
The partner referral competition ran in parallel with the main competition, and was a chance for our accounting and bookkeeping partners to be rewarded for spreading the word to their clients. When small businesses applied to the fund, they were asked on the application form if they were referred to the fund, and to name their accountant or bookkeeper and the firm in their application.
For each successful referral, partners went into the chance to win.
