Accounting software installation in Iraq's Kurdistan area will be examined in this study's primary objective. Quantitative methods were used by the researchers to determine the readiness factors for installing accounting software, including (technology readiness, human resource readiness, customer readiness, content readiness, educational readiness, leadership readiness, and cultural readiness). Erbil currently has seven small and medium-sized businesses (SME). SME's 120 administrative staff members were given the survey at random. A total of 104 people from various small and medium-sized businesses in Iraq's Kurdistan area participated in this study. Technology readiness was found to be most important, while human resource readiness came in last in Erbil SME's preparation for implementation of accounting software. There is a problem with this study because the survey questions may not be representative of the entire community of instructors and administrators at SME.
