This survey is designed to be completed by senior professionals of small- and medium-sized practices (SMPs), whose clients are predominately small- and medium-sized entities (SMEs). It is intended to take a snapshot of key issues, and track important trends and developments, facing this sector. The survey helps IFAC and its members gain an understanding of the specific challenges and opportunities faced by SMPs and SMEs globally, and as a result, better serve this critical constituency.
In 2015, you helped us collect over 6,700 responses, our largest response yet (see 2015 summary and report). As an individual working in practice, your input is very important to IFAC for monitoring the global developments affecting SMPs. This year the survey includes new questions on staffing and personnel issues, technology, as well as key practice benchmarking indicators.
The survey contains 11 primary questions, as well as 5 demographic questions. It should take about 10 minutes to complete. At the end of the survey, please provide your name and email address to be notified of the results. Please note that all individual responses are confidential and will not be attributed to you.
