This is a sign that recently appeared on the wall of gymnasium of which I’m a member. I first thought the manager was probably having a go at me because I’m slightly overweight. However, the more I thought about it, it’s obvious that the sign is a challenge to all people who visit the gym.

accountancy profession. We’re indeed living in times of
Small business reduction -
$500million “red tape” reduction, announced by the Australian
Taxation Office (ATO), targeted at accountants.
“Digital disruption” – which
is expected to have significant effect on at least six major
industries over the next two years, with variations in activities
of 24-43% forecast.
The tax return market is
under continuous pressure. Tax return are becoming more of
a “commodity” product.
In survey after survey,
small/medium enterprises have identified that they want a wider
range of services.
These are just some of the
emerging challenges facing accountants in 2015.

accountants will have to change their traditional work and delivery
models – just as what accountants have been doing, virtually every
decade, for the last 50 years.
