The Accountancy Industry Digital Plan (IDP) works as a guide for local Small and Medium Practices (SMPs) in the Accountancy industry to digitalise your businesses, plug skills gaps and participate in industry pilot projects.
Aligned to the Professional Services Industry Transformation Map and Accountancy Roadmap launched in 2018, the Accountancy IDP is part of the SMEs Go Digital programme.
Who is it for?
The Accountancy Industry Digital Plan is developed for local accounting entities, especially SMPs.
The IDP provides a step-by-step guide on the digital solutions to adopt at each stage of your growth. For a start, you can use the IDP to find out if your business is digital-ready.
You can refer to the Digital Roadmap of the IDP, as a guide to assess your digital readiness and identify opportunities for going digital and training to raise employees' digital skills.
