AM Awards | Auditing Process


BDO is the AM Awards' auditor.

"We are delighted to be acting as auditor of the AM awards. We are looking forward to meeting the dealer groups and seeing at first hand the best practices that put them at the forefront of the industry."

"Combining information from visits and a follow-up call once the company has entered, we will look deeper into its performance and planning abilities, BDO will then carry out a full audit of the shortlisted companies. Our independent audit will focus on planning, financial performance, people management and customer relationship management."



As independent auditors to the AM Awards, BDO will join the judging panel during the complete judging session in January.

Prior to this, they will be completing audits on the following categories, along with nominating dealerships that they feel should be entered for the Awards:

  • Best Aftersales Team
  • Best Sales Team (new and/or used)
  • Best Fleet or Local Business Dealer
  • Most Improved Dealership
  • Best Used Car Dealer (independent non-franchised)
  • Best Used Car Dealer (franchised)
  • Best New Dealership
  • Best Dealership
  • Best Retail Group (up to & including 10 sites)
  • Best Retail Group (more than 10 sites)

In order to be audited, you must first apply for the relevant category by clicking here.

It is completely free to enter; the only area of cost will be your time during the auditing process.

The audits will take place between October 29 and December 17. Only in exceptional circumstances will this be extended.
