An International Federation of Accountants committee is seeking feedback on an investigation into how employer expectations of professional accountants in business should evolve.
The Professional Accountants in Business (PAIB) committee paper analyses anticipated changes in relation to the drivers of sustainable organisational success.
These drivers provide the framework for key activities that professional accountants will be expected to perform.
PAIB committee chair Roger Tabor said the employer-based view of the expectations of professional accountants in business will help accountants prepare for the roles they will be expected to fill in the future.
“The world is changing, organisational needs are evolving and professional accountants need to adapt their skills and competences to these changing requirements and circumstances,” Tabor said.
The consultation paper asks for feedback on topics, including the usefulness of developing an international competency framework that would cover the roles and domain of professional accountants in business.
The deadline for comments is 30 November.
