Knowledge is an increasingly valued production factor 1 as by means of computerbased equipment its reproducible feature has been highlighted. Accounting has turned into the art of warranting the success of an organisation only to the extent in which it uses information technologies with a view to obtain and manipulate information. Via this medium, any patrimonial unit can produce a maximum profit with a minimum of effort. In order to be able to survive a within a fiercely competitive environment, the necessity of modernizing businesses appears as mandatory, by adopting the new information technology with a view to increasing their economic performance [4]. Within a global information environment, for an organisation modernizing process to be efficient, such businesses should have the following characteristics: flexibility, openness, receptivity to integration and globalization, standardization, digitalization, and artificial intelligence. Integrating and computerizing the activities in an organisation and carrying out the operations within a digital economy and a virtual organisation, highly interconnected, calls for the expansion and acceptance of the computer-assisted accounting method, real-time work, accepting new ways of working and new activities. Hence, it is increasingly relevant that topics as intelligent business, virtual business, the expansion of the Internet, e-commerce, ebanking, and global computerization of society are directions which mankind cannot avoid. Under these circumstances, businesses, willingly or against their will, need to modernize. Simultaneously, experts in accounting need to understand their field of competence through the lens of this development. In the accounting professional environment, a series of technological mutations will make their presence felt. Such mutations will strongly influence – from a theoretical as well as practical viewpoint – the financial – accounting field. All these events will entail a series of challenges accountancy will have to cope with. The current issue at hand is: what is the impact of using the new information technology on business accounting and to what extent the use of such technology contributes to the growth of the business economic performance?
