Contentive invites you to their event

Accountancy Age 50+50: results revealed – how does your firm stack up?

About this event

In 2021, Accountancy Age's annual 50+50 survey showed that accounting firms had spent £27million on technology, a slight decrease from the year before. Has this decrease in technology investment continued in 2022? And, if so, where are firms focusing their investments instead? 

Last year advisory and payroll services saw a substantial amount of growth. Payroll saw an increase of just over 19 percent on average. Which services will grow in popularity this year? 

Modulr and top accountants from around the UK discussed what they did in 2022 to set them up for success, which services boomed in demand, and the role fintech played in ensuring growth. 

In the webinar, we covered: 

  • Key findings from the 2022 Accountancy Age 50+50 report 
  • The rise of fintech and the role it plays in accountancy firm growth 
  • How accountancy firms can overcome challenges including time constraints, recruitment, and hybrid working
