In recent years compliance for accounting firms has taken a bit of a beating. Routinely pronounced dead at conferences, in social media posts, or any gathering where an accountant is in earshot. The message that accountants should develop advisory services or suffer a similar fate tends to follow close behind.
However, with Making Tax Digital on the horizon and the big accounting software players massing in the compliance market, the pod squad discuss whether we’re now seeing a compliance comeback, and what this means for advisory in the accountancy world.
Joining pod host Tom Herbert this week is tax writer Rebecca Cave, accounting tech titan John Stokdyk, and AccountingWEB’s very own practice correspondent Richard Hattersley.
