In your opinion, what is the future for the accounting profession?
As far as audit profession is concerned, the amount of regulatory changes and enhanced requirements currently envisaged within the Audit landscape of UAE means the audit profession in the country is set to change. For example, the recent announcements by Abu Dhabi Accountability Authority (ADAA), calling for mandatory rotation of auditors every four year, confirms the same. The country is taking progressive measures to include SME sectors under the scope of financial audit, which is a welcoming act for the profession.
The country being successful in implementing its first indirect taxation system, VAT, in 2018, is now working on expanding the taxation system and improving its administration on the lines of global best practices. These brings about a myriad of opportunities for finance professionals to serve clients in their VAT related concerns.
The recent developments in the compliance domain also has opened doors for finance professional. Especially considering the fact that UAE approved its new Anti-Money Laundering (AML) laws in 2019. This is considered as a major law and regulatory transformation in the country increasing the scope of work in the advisory sector
