Automation’s Effect on the Accounting Industry

CPAs understandably can get weary when considering all the effects automation could have on the accounting industry. Though according to Hitendra Patil, director of practice development for AccountantsWorld and author of Accountaneur: The Entrepreneurial Accountant*, emerging technology will not only fail to harm their job prospects, but also could make the CPA’s role more valuable in the long run.

*Podcast listeners can buy Patil’s book, Accountaneur: The Entrepreneurial Accountant, for 15 percent off when they use discount code acc10p.
