Practice Management Guidance

  • Building a Core Competency in Mergers and Acquisitions

    At many middle-market companies, mergers and acquisitions (M&A) are few and far between. But if your company’s strategy includes growth by acquisition, M&A needs to be a core competency. Fortunately, this does not require staffing a large internal transaction group.
  • 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. If you are forming a new firm, though, please consult an attorney, and if you do not handle taxes then you should also consult with a CPA to find out which structure works best for you from a tax perspective.
  • A Profession in Transition

    The theme of my term as PICPA president is going to be “A profession in transition.” The press is full of predictions regarding the demise of the accountant, citing automation and artificial intelligence as replacements. Instead, I believe the changing marketplace can be an opportunity for CPAs.
