Singapore Accountancy and Audit Convention 2017

Gearing up for the Accountancy Futurescape

Advances in technology and the unprecedented pace of digitalisation are revolutionising the business environment. To stay at the forefront of this change and thrive in the future economy, the accountancy sector must capitalise on technological innovations, integrate and grow. Concurrently, the sector must continue to keep to a high standard as expectations from various stakeholders over the quality of corporate reporting and audit continue to rise.

This is the backdrop for the Singapore Accountancy and Audit Convention 2017, which for the first time will be jointly organised by the Accounting and Corporate Regulatory Authority (ACRA), the Institute of Singapore Chartered Accountants (ISCA), and the Singapore Accountancy Commission (SAC). Join Singapore’s leading accounting and audit professionals for this insightful one-day convention that discusses the opportunities and growth potentials that lie ahead for the accountancy sector.
