Until now, A Management of an Accounting Practice Publication issued by the Private Companies Practice Section Executive Committee Succession planning continues to be a perennial top-five practice management issue for CPAs in firms of all sizes. Until now, a practitioner was essentially on his or her own to create and execute a succession plan for the firm. This new product has been developed under the guidance of the PCPS Executive Committee and is devoted to demonstrating that succession planning makes money for your firm today.
In developing Securing the Future, Bill Reeb surveyed over 500 CPA firms and conducted in-depth interviews with 30 managing partners representing firms in transition or about to grapple with succession. This intelligence has been distilled into a hands-on, tactical guidebook for CPAs wishing to develop a successful practice transition plan. Its unique content shows you how to best position the firm for succession or transition, advises you on avoiding common pitfalls, and guides you through the development and execution process.
