NY Metro Area Public Accounting Trends and Observations

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

I hope everyone is having a good start to the new year with a little less stress and pressure compared to the multitude of deadlines to come as tax and year end season kicks in.

Public accounting is truly a year-around business, as it should be. You are your client's first-string quarterback and closest advisor.  And that's a very good thing!

From where I sit, there is a buzz of activity as all firms are gearing up and planning for taxes, audits, reviews, compilations and special projects. Below are some of the activities I have been involved with recently which I believe are indicative of current trends in the profession.

If you are curious about how you or your firm matches up to others, what's the latest with CPA mergers, partner compensation trends and data, how to deal with the talent shortage, and just about anything connected to the public accounting community, please don't hesitate to contact me. My direct line is 212-490-7900, or you can email me at  Absolute confidentiality is always assured.

Wishing you a great 2015!
