Large numbers of accounting firms are expected to change licensing providers over the next year, as many are dissatisfied with the provider they are with, according to one financial services firm. Merit Wealth accountants services director David Moss says, in the lead-up to the end of the accountants’ exemption, many accounting firms rushed into a decision about which licensing provider to go with and based their decision purely on price.
