The Accounting Services Price Index rose by 1.5% in 2014, with every component of the index increasing.

The largest gains were in tax preparation services for individuals and unincorporated businesses (+3.3%) and tax preparation services for corporate clients (+2.9%). This was followed by a 1.3% increase in bookkeeping, compilation, payroll and general accounting services. However, these gains were moderated by a 0.2% increase in audit, review, related services and other assurance services, because of the component's high relative importance in the index.
