    Abstract

    Content analysis of the websites of professional accounting bodies and regulators is used to discover what issues are of most import to the profession, how the accounting profession envisions it future and what role the accounting standard setting bodies foresee for themselves. Comparisons are made between accounting professional bodies in Australia, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, Canada, and the United States of America. Whether the changes and issues identified in the research are regarded by the profession as welcome challenges that provide opportunities for growth, or as worrisome chores that have resulted in a heavier compliance burden and higher client expectations is discussed.
