2015 PCPS CPA Firm Top Issues Survey Results
With responses from across the country, firms everywhere are grappling with similar challenges. Seasonality/workload compression, succession planning and staff issues point toward increasing complexity and ongoing issues related to firm culture within the profession. Now is the time to consider a shift from the traditional firm business model, giving owners and partners a chance to re-experience the excitement of the entrepreneurial spirit and reinvent their firm.

Keeping up with the changes and complexity of tax laws and increased regulation remains a top challenge for small- and medium-sized firms while larger firms are facing issues around partner accountability and unity and attracting new clients.

  The Diagnostic Report takes a look at the issues facing firms in more detail and provides a historical view of the top ten issues by firm size. In addition, incorporated into the report is a checklist of available AICPA tools and resources to assist firms in addressing these challenges. Read it today!
