Very few children grew up wanting to be accountants. For most people, however, as they grew up and realised being an astronaut-rock star-billionaire wasn’t that practical a career path, they had to choose something more realistic. For many, they fell into the murky waters of accounting – but is accounting boring, really?
Myths Versus Reality
The simple answer to “is accountancy boring?” is no, but it can be. Which isn’t that simple, but it’s simple enough. Accountancy isn’t boring because it allows you to become a truly integral part of the way businesses operate. Finances are the backbone of every business, and you as an accountant are the secret weapon every business needs to stay successful. Every business from the freshly established sole trader to the multinational corporation relies heavily on its accountancy teams, so what accountants do for their clients is a truly invaluable service.
It can be a fascinating field, too, when you have the freedom to use your acumen in a practical way. Every business wants to save money, and as an accountant, you are perfectly placed to provide them with the considered and experienced input they need to develop those strategies.

These are fascinating things, and things you can’t do if you’re busy spending every day doing boring stuff – like payroll.
