International Conference on ‘Emerging Global Trends in Accounting, Finance and Taxation’ to be Held at Jain (Deemed-to-be University)

About the Event

The Accounting profession will face significant changes in the next three decades and professional organizations, their members, and educational institutions should respond to such changes. The three changes - evolving smart and digital technology, continued globalization of reporting/ disclosure standards and new forms of regulation - are major challenges for the profession.

Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) research - Drivers of Change and Future Skills - has explored these important changes, expected to be encountered by the year 2025. The future accountants are required to be educated in digital technology, globalization, and evolving regulations. As the ACCA report has revealed that knowledge of digital technologies is the key competency area where professional accountants have skill gaps.

At present accountants lack knowledge in a transformation of new disclosure regulations, new forms of disclosures and awareness of the interconnectedness of financial and non-financial reporting. The universities are required to develop their curriculum by inculcating these new concepts which will make the students corporate ready. In this backdrop, Jain (Deemed-to-be University)’s Department of Commerce, School of Commerce Studies, is conducting a two-day International Conference on “Emerging Global Trends in Accounting, Finance, and Taxation”.

The main objectives of the conference is

  • To provide a platform for academicians and practitioners in the areas of Finance, Accounting, Taxation and other related disciplines to reflect, deliberate, analyze and suggest measures that are needed to understand the dynamics of global accounting, finance and taxation
  • To is to incubate and develop rigorous and relevant research in the field of accounting, finance and taxation
  • To encourage and facilitate researchers to employ the highest standards of academic diligence in addressing various challenges faced in the field of accounting, finance, and taxation
