  • CPA Firm Corporate Structure Choices

    Since the CPA Law has undergone several revisions, and since both the PICPA staff and I regularly receive questions about what legal entities are appropriate for CPA firms in Pennsylvania, now is a good time to familiarize yourself with your options.

  • A Profession in Transition
