Over a decade ago, accounting firms moved from paper-based audit systems to paperless. In most cases, this simply moved a ‘document-centric’ audit approach from paper to electronic but continued the same ‘audit binder’ approach that has been in place for decades. As a profession, we’ve changed our storage media and document formats, but we’ve not meaningfully changed processes, outputs, or client value. Fundamentally, the way the audit is conducted has remained essentially the same.

This is all set to change…

Accounting firm clients, as well as existing and prospective staff, expect accounting firms to be not just digitally savvy, but to be digitally progressive. They expect their accounting firm to be financial data experts, using new technologies to continually improve the client and the staff experience. Achieving this level of expertise and leadership with authenticity will require firms to pursue digital opportunities and embrace digital transformation.
