The awards are made each year by HM The King, on the advice of the Prime Minister assisted by an Advisory Committee that includes representatives of Government, industry and commerce, and the trade unions. Winners enjoy a range of benefits, including worldwide recognition and extensive press coverage.

Successful winners and their nominees are informed shortly before the announcement and invited to a reception at Buckingham Palace.. The Lord-Lieutenant, Michael More-Molyneux, or one of his Deputy Lieutenants, then presents the Awards to any successful businesses in Surrey.
