The Association for Accounting Administration recently completed the 2015 Paperless Benchmarking survey to find out the status of paperless office practices in accounting firms this upcoming busy season. The survey has been conducted every two years beginning in 2003 to help identify trends in adopting “less paper” processes. Seven NEW questions were added this year to replace those that questions that had exceeded 80% in firm adoption, and three questions (designated with an * for 2013) were updated for 2015 terminology/considerations. For the 2015 survey, 102 firms participated; see how your firm stacks up against the questions below and you may find some leading practices your firm could be implementing this busy season. To find out more about the specific results of this survey, Roman H. Kepczyk, CPA.CITP, AAAPM presented a webcast on January 12, 2015 which is available to member firms.
