“Out with the old, in with the new”

New year is coming, and we all are looking forward for hopes and prospect in the coming year ahead. Deep-diving into predictions, forecasts or prognosis is a common-thing to do, despite its validity. Let`s be honest, we rarely compare last year prediction over its happened-facts regarding those predictions. I think it is a good way of act to make that comparison, to see whether certain prognosis was having its valid value. Not for collection of predictions and facts, but more for validating whether it is worth doing for making any predictions.
Despite the urgencies for validations, here are some 2023 accounting outlook. We compiled many outlook trends, and they basically can be organized as follows:
