January 2016 Analysis & Commentary

January 2016 - 

Dear Friends and Colleagues:

It's been awhile since our last communication and I hope you are all well.

There are a couple of things I would like to share with you that might be of interest.

First is an article that was published in Crain's in December 2015 regarding what the best firms are doing to get better.  A number of managing partners in the New York metropolitan area discuss what their firms are doing to continue to grow and prosper.  Read more...

Next is a posting in Accounting Today from January 26, 2016 where the president of the AICPA took a very strong position about what's happening at the IRS and other matters in the profession.

The above is taken from the speaker's remarks at a very recent meeting of the Accountants Club of America.

My best wishes to all practicing CPAs for a smooth and not too stressful busy season and, if you are a Super Bowl fan, may your favorite team be the winner of Super Bowl  50!  My team is, not unsurprisingly, gone.

If you would like to discuss these or any other issues related to your practice or career, please don't hesitate to contact me. My direct line is (212) 490-9700. Or email me at  Absolute confidentiality always assured.
