FEE publishes survey on the accountancy profession in Europe
The Federation of European Accountants (Fédération des Experts-comptables Européens, FEE) has released a survey which provides a collection of key features on structure and organisation of the accountancy profession across 30 European countries.
The report from the survey, Key Features on Structure and Organisation of the Accountancy Profession across 30 European countries, provides general information by country on existing professions and titles, main activities, education and market access requirements.
The survey finds the rules regarding the pursuit of activities and services provided by professional accountants generally vary across Europe, with only statutory audit services achieving a certain level playing field due to harmonisation at EU level.
The survey is published as a summary, accompanied by a separate report for each of the thirty European countries it covers.
