The adoption of CAS among the users, however, varies especially in term of the factors that influence the usage and the level of the adoption. This paper aims, among other factors, to investigate the relationship between the model of technology acceptance (TAM) and the use of CAS. The main purpose is to examine the connection between the two variables of TAM, perceived ease of use and perceived usefulness, and use of CAS among accountants in micro and small enterprises (MSEs). The scope of this study is businesses in Xi’an, Shaan Xi of China. An online survey has been used to obtain feedback from 400 respondents. However, only 201 responseshave been returned and available for further analysis. This study discovers a beneficial connection between perceived ease of use, perceived usefulness and CAS use. This study could guide the accountants and business owners as well as the research communities to understand the correlation of technology acceptance and the use of CAS.
