Nov 07, 2014 | English

Note: Deadline extended until December 22, 2014. 

The International Federation of Accountants (IFAC), the global organization for the accountancy profession, has launched its 2014 IFAC Global SMP Survey ( to investigate current opportunities and challenges faced by small- and medium-sized practices (SMPs) in the accounting profession worldwide. Available in 21 languages, the survey is open through December 15, 2014, and takes less than 10 minutes to complete.

Conducted annually, the survey tracks prominent trends and developments and generates an overview of the financial health of SMPs in the industry. This year, survey questions were designed with the assistance of several academics and lead researchers at the University of Dayton in the US.

Results from the survey, which will be published by IFAC in early 2015, will help IFAC to better understand the country-specific and industry-wide needs and challenges of SMPs, and shape future programs and initiatives.
