There is a significant shortage of accountants in North America. The AICPA Trends Report reveals a decline in candidates taking the CPA exam. The number of first-time candidates has decreased from 48,004 in 2016 to 32,188 in 2021, marking a 33% drop attributed directly to declines in enrollment in accounting programs. Additionally, the retirement of baby boomers, who make up approximately 25% of the workforce, is occurring rapidly, with 10,000 boomers retiring each day. This has far-reaching consequences for the accounting profession, affecting various areas of practice such as bookkeeping, accounting, audit, tax, and advisory services. Here are the top reasons why Accounting firms should consider offshore talent.
