We lobby governments, regulators and standard setters in the long-term interest of a healthy SME sector, and we support professional accountants so they can continue to function as the sector’s most trusted business advisers and finance managers.
Finance professionals can play a vital role in the development and growth of SMEs. ACCA's research demonstrates how business growth in small businesses is linked to the capabilities of the in-house finance function.
