The IT Usage in Accountancy Practices Survey 2003 revealed that a mere 37% of respondents have a practice website, a figure virtually unchanged from 2001 and 2002.
The worrying statistic is in stark contrast to the adoption of broadband, however, which saw an increase of almost 300%, with 34% of respondents now using the technology.
‘Many practices expected a year ago to have set up websites by now, but have not done so,’ said Dr Paul Booth, technical manager of the IT Faculty.
‘Significantly, though, the proportion finding their website is giving them “very good value” has more than doubled since 2002 from 8% to 17%,’ Booth added, before going on to describe the finding as ‘encouraging’.
