ACCOUNTANTS REDEFINED

Accountancy has long moved on from the dictionary definition of "keeping and inspecting" financial accounts. It's now become much more of an advisory role. So, as the leading software provider to small businesses and their accountants, Xero has politely asked the OED to change the dictionary definition of "accountant".

The move has got the support of trade and consumer media and we now await word from the OED. Fingers crossed they run an update.
