Has your firm developed strategies for:
•    Digital Disruption – Deloitte has forecast a 32% change for accountancy businesses.  Should your firm be replenishing revenue streams?
•    Standard Business Reporting (SBR) – the ATO has forecast a minimum of $500M per annum “red tape reduction” and all of this is predicted to come from accountancy fees.
•    Cashflow Management – in October 2014, the Second Commissioner of the ATO has advised accountants to become consultants to small/medium enterprises, to assist them to better manage their cashflows.
•    Surveys of small/medium enterprises have indicated that they want more services from accountants.  The CCH report, “SMEs – the fine line between failure and success”, identified that small/medium enterprises wanted some additional services, such as:
-    management of costs
-    management monitoring
-    business plans
-    assistance in raising capital or loan funds
-    expansion advice

At the 2014 ATSA Conference, Jason Bender of Deloitte said, “If accountants are not really careful, the profession could really suffer.  Don’t let this happen on our watch!”
