IAB’s World Survey 2022 Supplement offers great value for sponsors and readers

Happy New Year to all our subscribers,

Going into 2022, the team at IAB and The Accountant is already busy planning our schedule and getting projects underway for the year ahead; at the tail end of 2021, we began planning for several major projects including the World Survey 2022 that will be released in March and the newly titled International Accounting Forum & Awards, to be held in June.

We have been encouraged by last year’s successful live conference and awards event which was enthusiastically received by accounting industry leaders, practitioners, students, and sponsors, all of whom expressed their interest for another live event this year. Fingers crossed, we will be able to follow through in person.

There is a new dimension to the World Survey 2022 in that it will carry an additional supplement taking a deep dive look at some of the industry’s leading players and products.

Contributing to the World Survey 2022 Supplement will offer industry stakeholders such as accounting Networks, Associations and technology providers an opportunity to address their business plans and strategies, highlight operational and product capabilities and demonstrate Thought Leadership. This will offer valuable focussed positioning for your company, maximising your market reach to GlobalData’s wide subscriber distribution base. For further information and to participate contact: sharon.howley@verdict.co.uk.

In this issue, read PrimeGlobal CEO Steve Heathcote’s opinion on cross border eCommerce opportunities accelerated by the pandemic; experts from Mazars discuss tax and legal considerations of international assignments; Open Banking sees increased adoption allowing licenced companies access via authorisation; there is a 6 Step Guide on succession planning; ActiveOps USA discuss the impact of vaccination mandates on business life; Roberta Santayana, Director at Russell Bedford Brazil discusses how Brazil’s employment law can become a hybrid of domestic and international law. In addition, there are articles looking at how CFOs are driving transformational change, coping under the burdens brought on by the pandemic and dealing with the pressure of government initiatives to impact liabilities on balance sheets.
