打一场漂亮的胜仗       
2019-03-26

我代表IPA董事会和整个IPA团队,欢迎来到2019年并祝福大家开年大吉。今年从提交先期年度预算等一系列紧张的活动开始,我们将继续拥护并代表您和所有澳大利亚小企业发声。
在联邦选举的政治舞台上,这也将是重要的一年,可能会再次见证政府的变化。同样,我们仍然保持非政治性的视角,无论谁掌权,我们将持续不懈地宣扬主张。
虽然在政治上这是一场艰苦的战斗,但我们将继续打好这场博弈,为新的合格会计师金融服务许可制度推进我们的建议,目的是为消费者提供负担得起的、称职的财务建议。去年是IPA显著发展的一年,我们将继续成长并在财务成果的基础上再接再厉,以便我们可以为全体成员拓展投资,提供更优质的服务和利益。
数字化升级项目就是我们的一个重点提升领域。我们目前正在寻找一个新的数字平台,为了帮助会员将其服务转移到云端。对于实现云处理的成员,迁移到云端会给他们带来很多好处。
一个关键的好处是,您可设置一个虚拟办公室,可以随时随地灵活地连接到您的企业。在大多数情况下,云计算将降低管理和维护IT系统的成本。您还可以扩展或浓缩业务,在需求变化时带来灵活性,使用云端可以节省时间,助您专营业务,赢得更多休闲时间。
有些人会担心数据的保护性,但事实上,云计算却可以确保数据在安全可靠的环境下备份和受到保护。无论是遇到自然灾害,电源故障还是其他危机,云服务都可以让您快速再次访问数据,最大限度地减少停机时间和生产力损失。
这是一个令人兴奋的进展,随着我们将IPA集团逐步发展成为一个全球性的专业机构,我们将为会员以及他们的客户提供电子化平台,接下来我将在未来几个月随时向您通报相关进展情况。

Fighting the good fight
On behalf of the IPA Board and the entire IPA team, welcome to 2019 and happy New Year. This year has begun with a flurry of activity, including our annual pre-budget submission as we continue to advocate on your behalf and for all Australian small businesses.
It will also be a big year in the political arena with the federal election, which may see a change of government. Again, we remain apolitical and regardless of who is in power, we will continue our relentless and ongoing advocacy work.
While politically it is an uphill battle, we will continue to fight the good fight and push ahead with our proposal for a new qualified accountants financial services licensing regime, to enable the provision of affordable and competent financial advice to consumers. Last year was a year of significant growth for the IPA and we will be striving to build on that growth and financial outcomes so we can reinvest in the business to develop and provide enhanced services and benefits to all of our members.
One area of development is our digitisation program. We are currently scoping out a new digital platform to help members transition their services to the cloud. For those members who have not yet transitioned, moving to the cloud comes with many benefits.
One key benefit is that it allows you to set up what is essentially a virtual office that gives you the flexibility of connecting to your business anywhere, any time. In most cases, cloud computing will reduce the cost of managing and maintaining your IT systems. You can also scale up or scale down your business, allowing flexibility as your needs change, and using the cloud frees up your time so you can get on with running your business and hopefully have more leisure time.
Some people get concerned about protecting data but in fact, cloud computing ensures your data is backed up and protected in a secure and safe location. Whether you experience a natural disaster, power failure or some other crisis, the cloud allows you to access your data again quickly, minimising downtime and loss of productivity.
This is an exciting development and I will keep you informed on its progress over the coming months as we evolve our thinking of the IPA Group as a global professional body acting on an electronic platform for members and their clients.
