The Evolution of Accounting Practices and the Trends that Emerge as Indicators of the Future

Accounting has evolved from a technical process driven by the need for efficiencies in accounting for transactions to become the key information systems’ provider which supports the information needs of users, i.e., investors, creditors, and other lenders. We explore the historical evolution to land at the current supply and demand of accountants’ trends for insight into the current status of the profession. We will incorporate findings from the AICPA 2019 Trends Report.

Survey of the Accounting Regulatory Body Releases, Agenda and Emergent Issues

Transactions are becoming more complex and we see evidence of the type of transactions that are attracting the attention of stakeholders and users through recent standards and releases from our governing regulatory bodies. We survey the recent activity of the key regulatory agencies for a high-level appraisal of the latest standards, relevant pronouncements, exposure drafts, and other guidance. We reference the SEC, the FASB, the GASB, the PCAOB, and the AICPA.

Preparing the Profession and Future Professionals for What’s Next: Let’s Take a Glimpse into the Current and Future Plans

The CPA Evolution project has been a key indicator of what is on the horizon and on the minds of many of the decision-makers. The recommended changes if approved, will require that academia be aligned and prepared to facilitate changes in delivery and content of the accounting curriculum. We take a look at what is current and what is on the horizon as stakeholders of the profession so that we build a better future together.
