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

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
