The purpose of this study is to examine the effect of automation on accountants and accountants’ work in Indonesia. In Indonesia, automation starts to be significant. Many companies have gradually integrated their operation with automated technology. Nevertheless, the overall implementation of automation in Indonesia is considered one of the lowest compared to other countries in the ASEAN region.

Several accountants from across companies and industries were interviewed to get their insights. This study found that accountants in Indonesia are very aware of the emergence of technology, including automation in their jobs. They realized automation affects the required skills of accountants. Nevertheless, automation also creates the opportunity for a job promotion. This study shed some light on the effect of technology, particularly automation on accountants’ work in Indonesia.
