UK accounts struggle with stress

More than 80% of British accountants suffer from stress and many are struggling to cope with long hours and a poor work-life balance, research has found.

The survey found that a quarter of accountants drink in excess and one in eight have misused drugs in the past year.

Stress is the biggest issue as many are faced with excessive demands from employers and are fearful for their jobs in the unstable economic climate.

The research was conducted by the Chartered Accountants’ Benevolent Association. It questioned more than a 1,000 accountants and 1,100 students – all members of the Institute of Chartered Accounts for England and Wales.
