Finance Magazine - September 2008 Issue

Competitiveness should come first

Accountancy still sees growth, but pace slackens to an 11 p.c. gain
The golden era of uninterrupted double digit fee income growth by Ireland’s largest accountancy firms is showing signs of flagging, according to the results of the FINANCE Magazine Accountancy Survey 2008, which shows fee income of the twenty largest practices up by 11.0 per cent in the past year, a reduced rate of increase compared with the 19.6 per cent recorded in 2006/7.

FINANCE Accountancy Survey 2008: Top 20 recruitment for 2008/2009 will be down by 19 p.c.
For the year in prospect, projected recruitment is put at 1,878, down from 1082 in 2007/2008, a fall of 18.8 p.c.. The brunt of the decline will be in professional recruitment, down from 527 last year to to 317 this year and non professional graduate recruitment, down from 226 last year to 127 this year.
Managing partners look to positives as storm clouds gather
The ability to adapt to the changed economic climate by offering clients new or revised services will be key for accountants going forward, say managing partners in Ireland’s top 20 accountancy firms, and the 2008 Accountancy Survey results indicating a decrease in corporate finance, tax and consulting and increase in audit/accounting and corporate recovery comes as no surprise to them.
