QLD Rockhampton Members Group March 2019

Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand (CA ANZ) invite you to attend our first Rockhampton Building Knowledge event for the year. Sessions are comprised of an informal networking session followed by a one-hour presentation by an expert in industry.
Presentation Summary 

Topic: CommBank Accounting Market Pulse (Trends & Developments in the Australian Accountancy Industry) 

  • The CommBank Accounting Market Pulse report is our ongoing research and analysis of business conditions and the emerging trends transforming the accounting sector. We survey the top 100 Accounting firms in Australia.
  • This year’s report comes at a time of better business conditions, with an improving economy and a recovery in business investment converging to bring a new sense of positivity to the industry — along with expected revenue and profit growth. Nonetheless, firms remain conscious of the significant challenges ahead. 
  • Our research shows that winning new business, negotiating prices with clients and retaining quality staff continues to be challenging. 
  • In response to a changing competitive landscape, firms also continue to diversify their services and further embedding their emerging roles as multi-disciplinary professional advice practices. While many firms continue to diversify into segments such as business advisory and emerging areas such as risk management or cybersecurity.
