The Accounting profession is in the middle of a significant change. No longer are accountants considered “number crunchers” who deliver compliance services as their key functional role. Gone are the days of tax returns and statutory accounts, as these key functions become commodotised and are becoming outsourced to shared services departments overseas and potentially become part of the rise of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Robotic Process Automation (RPA).
Now, more than ever, qualified accounting professionals are becoming a key resource to guide and influence an organisation, department or business unit. The individual trusted to assist with decision making, and provide strategic guidance and insight into the direction of the company.
