The American Institute of Certified Public Accountants published an article praising small CPA firms:
“small firms serve their clients in ways that often go beyond the books. Small firm practitioners act as the volunteer treasurers of thousands of nonprofits, and lend a hand to a variety of religious organizations, community teams and clubs. Their practices reflect their communities. I know of a sole practitioner who runs a farm in Eastern Oregon and serves as a trusted advisor to neighboring farmers. Another, located in Alaska, has clients across the state, which requires daylong plane rides to conduct face-to-face meetings.”
This pretty well describes my small practice.
(Just to be clear, I am a member of NJCPA but not a member of AICPA).
