PCPS CPA Firm Top Issues Survey

1 month ago · 1 min read

The PCPS CPA Firm Top Issues Survey gathers insights from practitioners in firms of all sizes to understand the significant issues facing firms across the country. The results offer a valuable perspective on the state of practice today and identify the developments and issues that may have an impact on practitioners in the near term. Practitioners can use the survey to confirm that they share common concerns, to learn about trends they may have missed and to identify emerging challenges that they should be prepared to address.

The survey responses are broken down by firm size, with separate lists released for sole practitioners and for firms with 2 to 5, 6 to 10, 11 to 20 or 21 or more professionals. The AICPA and its Private Companies Practice Section (PCPS) team use the biennial surveys to pinpoint areas where new tools and resources may be needed to help practitioners address current challenges.

Use the below commentary, analysis and recommended resources to gain an understanding of the challenges firms are currently facing as well as concerns believed to impact practitioners over the next five years.
