European SMP survey 2015


In this report and its summary we present the challenges faced by the 2,680 European accountants working in small- and medium-sized practices (SMPs) that responded to the International Federation of Accountants’ (IFAC) Global SMP Survey 2015. These SMPs serve in total over 330,000 European small- and medium-sized entities (SMEs) and we also provides insight into their circumstances.

The support of professional accountants is crucial to make SMEs, which make up 99.8 % of EU companies, flourish. We are committed to help developing EU policy that supports this indispensable source for jobs and growth in Europe.
