Article Summary


  • Accountants are increasingly using AI to make their jobs easier.
  • Survey shows almost all accountants are using AI for various tasks.

Accountants are turning to artificial intelligence to handle the increasing demand for finance support software, with three in four reporting a surge in demand over the past year. The rise in demand could be due to tech layoffs, self-employment, startups, and emerging small to medium-sized businesses. As a result, almost all accountants surveyed have utilized AI to improve efficiency and customer relations. AI is being used for data entry and processing, real-time financial insights, financial forecasting, fraud detection and prevention, and tax services. However, accountants still have concerns about AI, with accuracy and reliability, data privacy, security, and cost being key issues. While AI is a helpful tool, it is not seen as a complete replacement for human accountants. Accountants have been investing more in technology over the past year, and this trend is expected to continue, with blockchain, AI, automation, and machine learning being key areas for future investment.
