About This Special Issue
Finance and Accounting is continuously progressing .Today’s firms are full of dynamic and creative professionals who recognize and capitalize on continually emerging trends in the finance and accounting.

As we are progressing through the 21st century, Finance professionals see their responsibility shift from “Recording various aspects of a corporation’s financial health” to “Joining top executives in a broad based partnership”, a trend accelerated by the current financial crisis. The emergence of distinct business models; a trend pushed by globalisation and the economic rise is also forcing financial professionals to re-examine their roles.

The changes emerging in the Finance and Accounting (F& A) functions are giving a new shape to the market, offering new opportunities for both Enterprises and the private companies. Outsourcing in Finance and Accounting is no longer just about Cost and Risk reduction, it is very well becoming a means to transform operations.The present era of globalisation and liberalization has shrunk the geographical barriers of commerce. The whole world has literally become flat. One can see the cross-border economic activities happening in a swift way.

Aims & Objectives:

1) An Eye on process Transformation
2) Looking for hybrid F & A services.
3) Forecast is “Cloudy”.
4) The numbers don’t lie.
