Don’t miss the future of accounting event on Wed 20 November


This is an event you should not miss. The SA Institute of Business Accountants (Saiba) and Intuit QuickBooks yearend event takes place on Wednesday 20 November at The Capital in the Park in Sandton. The key focus of the event is the Fourth Industrial Revolution that is transforming the accounting sector – not in some distant future, but right here and right now.

This event is the last of the year for Saiba and looks at the future of accounting – specifically, how to transform your business to take advantage of the new technologies that are reshaping our sector. At the event you will get an up-close and in-depth look at the future of accounting, based on research recently completed on behalf of Saiba by Tangent Solutions. Find out how computer programmes are doing 560 times the work of an articled clerk.

Rather than being a threat to the accounting profession, there are huge opportunities for growth and expansion, says Nicolaas van Wyk, CEO of Saiba. “Accountants need to know what the Fourth Industrial Revolution is all about and how they can take advantage of it without having to invest a fortune. This will be the dominant theme of the accounting sector heading into 2020.”

The speakers include Nicolaas van Wyk, CEO of Saiba, Bernard Agulhas, head of Independent Regulatory Board for Auditors (IRBA), Advocate Rory Voller of the Companies and Intellectual Property Commission (CIPC), and a range of technology experts focused on the accounting and finance space.
