Top Issues Facing the Accounting World Today
While processes have become more efficient over time, there are still a number of issues facing accountants today. Some of the main issues that speakers Brady Suggs and Bryce Fomey, as well as moderator Roger Russell, highlighted in the seminar that includes the following.
Online security must be paramount in all of your operations. As information has become digitized, the need for additional security measures becomes vital, particularly when you’re dealing with information as personal as tax information. Without the right security measures in place, organizations can be left susceptible to hackers, security breaches, and much more.
Let’s face it, client communication can be challenging. Often taking up a considerable portion of your day, communication—while important—can also be difficult. Countless accountants have been left waiting on just a few more papers from their clients, not to mention information getting lost in the shuffle.
How easily would you say it is to access the information you need? Many organizations still spend unnecessary hours each month tracking down tax-related files and information. With more work being done on the go and from remote locations, it can be challenging for organizations to effectively manage and control user access.
While programs exist that store information, what about managing information? Effective file management is one of the biggest issues in the accounting world today. With countless storage options but few effective management options, countless accountants struggle to find an answer to this problem.
It’s something you’re probably already are well aware of: IT isn’t cheap. With rising IT costs, many organizations are left with lackluster tax file storage and management solutions. In-house teams can often be expensive, not to mention inefficient. Even licensing storage costs alone can rack up quite a bill.
