Pessimism grows amongst Irish accountants

Industry twice as pessimistic compared to six months ago

Business sentiment among Ireland’s accountants has plummeted – they are now
twice as pessimistic about Ireland’s business climate than they were six months
ago, according to the latest
CPA
Business Barometer Survey
shows.

The barometer found that over 40% of CPA members surveyed have seen a
worsening in the business climate compared with 20% in the previous poll.

Nearly half (49%) believe that this disimprovement will continue into 2008.

Despite this negative mood, accountants continued to strongly endorse the
current government with 33% of respondents declaring they will vote for
Ireland’s governing party Fianna Fail
and the PDs.
