Abstract [en]

Digitalization is a phenomenon that affects the whole society and has contributed to the creation of a new world regarding digital opportunities. Digitalization has affected all industries and the accounting industry is one of these. Efficiency, flexibility and accessibility are some of the benefits that digitalization has contributed with. In order to keep up with developments and maintain competitiveness, accounting firms have had to adapt their working methods and processes, which in turn affects the individual accountant. The purpose of the thesis is to understand how the accounting consultant perceives that the work situation has changed as a result of digitization, based on the practice theory. The aim is achieved through an empirical study of ten accountants where a qualitative research strategy is used in the form of interviews. Previous research has a practical focus and deals with, among other things, how thee accountants perform their work in practice. There are no studies that focus on the individuals and how changes, such as digitalization, affect them as well as their own experiences and thoughts about the changes. Therefore, there is a need to gain an increased understanding of how the accountants perceives that their work situation has changed as a result of digitalization. The result of this study indicates that the accountants have a positive attitude towards changes in the work situation as a result of digitalization. The accountants who participated in the study describe that their experiences are influenced by factors such as changes in working methods, laws and regulations and IT problems. In general, the accountants are open to change because in the end it results in a better work situation.
