Digital Transformation in Accounting

Asset 12


In 2018, we published a report called Digital Transformation in Accounting, which looked at how forward-thinking accountants were increasingly using technology to improve their businesses and better serve clients.

In the time since, the importance of technology has only grown. The Government’s 2020 Making Tax Digital policy set out a bold aim of paperless records and returns, while cloud accounting technology advances have extended what is possible for firms and clients alike.

Meanwhile, the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted multiple aspects of life for accountants – accelerating change in areas including client service, flexible working and cyber risk.

Given the pace of change, Beaming is revisiting the topic in this report and series of short films in which accounting experts and technologists explore the impact that digital transformation continues to have on how accountancy practices operate.
