Abstract: The study was carried out on the impact of information technology on the accounting line of work. Purpose: The purpose was to determine the impact of information technology on the accounting line of works in the global system. Methodology: A survey methodology was adopted. In the course of gathering Information, questionnaires were constructed, validated, and dispensed to sampled elements of the targeted area, which had the relevant knowledge in the area of inquiry. Appropriate statistical tools were adopted to evaluate the raw facts obtained. Results/Conclusion: Results of the investigation had shown that information technology has a substantial influence on the accounting line of work and was therefore concluded that accounting line of work has changed from what it used to be before now to a line of works that developed in alliance with the trend in technical improvement and a globalized structure. Furthermore as inferred from the findings of the study, there is a great call for prompt and concerted efforts on several fronts in order to find ways of coping with the growing degree of window dressing account, the malady of accounting noise and fraud skyrocketing syndrome in the business and the non-business world due to non-adhering to tenets of information technology when carrying out an accounting line of works. Recommendation: It was consequently recommended that the accounting line of work will be greatly enhanced if information technology is allowed to penetrate and dominate accounting practices and operations.
