About the awards

The British Credit Awards recognise the stand out achievements of the most deserving individuals, teams and organisations in the international credit industry. Congratulations go to our 2019 winners, who truly went beyond expectation and demonstrated excellence to claim their titles. In 2020 it's your chance to lift the trophy!

The British Credit Awards were launched 8 years ago as a platform to celebrate the achievements of credit professional and organisations. It is now the flagship event in the credit industry and receiving an award at the glittering event ceremony is recognised as the highest accolade you can receive in your profession.

This year we have new categories and are excited to recognise and applaud the success of you and your teams.
