8 3 Accounting Services 25 Industry 2 Outlook 15 Accounting Services revenue is expected to grow by 21.2% from FY215/16 to FY219/2 to $2.6 billion, from its current $17. billion. 1 Revenue growth over the medium term is expected to be driven by technological change and continued growth of 5 advisory and consulting services. The number of accounting businesses are forecast to grow by 5.8% over the five years from FY215/16 to FY219/2, while over the same period employment is expected to increase by 11.2% indicating consolidation within the sector Capital expenditure by the private sector is a major factor affecting industry performance, as accounting firms receive most of their income from the private sector. With capital expenditure by the private sector expected to continue its fall over 215/16, the growth of industry revenue may be hampered in the short term. Total business numbers across all industries are growing again for the first time in four years indicating potential new sources of revenue for accounting firms.
