It’s no secret that the accounting industry is going through a period of huge transition right now. The way you work today is completely different to how you or your colleagues worked 20, 10, or even 2 years ago, and this transformation is not going to slow down.
So it’s only natural that a lot of people in the industry are left feeling a little uncertain about what lies ahead.
During the last quarter of 2015, the Karbon team sat down with over 75 accountants and industry experts from Australia, the United States and the United Kingdom. We wanted to get a thorough understanding of where the accounting industry is right now.
What are the big issues? Where is the industry heading? And what should you be doing this year if your practice is going to prosper? In each one of these discussions we kept coming back to the same issues. It became obvious that these issues are the biggest trends that will impact the accounting industry in 2016.
We compiled everything we learnt, focusing on these five key trends, and developed a report just for you. This is a paper written specifically for your industry, so it is different from every other trend report you’ve read.
This is the product of hours and hours of discussion and input from those that know — experts and the real-life accountants (just like you) that are dealing with these issues every day. Most importantly, each of these five trends prompt an action — we’ve established clear takeaways that you should implement today if you want your practice to grow this year.
To launch our 2016 Accounting Trend Report we’ll be holding exclusive briefing sessions over breakfast in each of Australia’s capital cities, and we’d love for you to attend. We will take you through each of the five trends and share what we’ve learnt. And of course, you will be amongst the first to get a hold of your own copy of the report.
Places for these briefings are limited and will fill up. If you are able to attend please select your preferred event and register now.
