IFAC Global SMP Survey: 2015 Summary

Feb 29, 2016 | Surveys & Reports

The Summary of the IFAC Global SMP Survey: 2015 Results provides highlights from the full-length report, including select notable variations by region and size of practice.

The 2015 survey was conducted in 22 languages October–November 2015 and received 6,725 responses from 169 countries. The survey was undertaken in collaboration with lead researchers from the University of Dayton (UD). The UD participants were Sarah Webber and Donna L. Street. As some regions, countries, and larger SMPs were not well represented in the survey results, caution should be exercised when attempting to generalize survey results to specific countries, specific regions, or SMPs of all sizes.

IFAC wishes to thank the many member and regional organizations that helped with translation and distribution of the survey.

Conducted since 2011, the IFAC Global SMP Survey provides an opportunity for SMPs around the world to share their insights on key trends and developments facing them and their small- and medium-sized entity (SME) clients. The results are critical to IFAC and its member organizations gaining a deeper understanding of the challenges and opportunities facing this key sector.
