Accounting Practices

Buy Sell Merge Accounting Practices

There is still a bit of movement in the market with vendors looking at options, there is also been a lot of speculation about a surge of practices for sale on the market as the baby boomers all retire at once. 


As we all know this has not happened…YET!


Various factors come into play such as technology, improved health, and loyal staff members; some are tied into a long lease and hard to break out etc.


In today’s market if you were to look at housing, it is a sellers’ market and this trend continues in the commercial field of selling accounting practices.


However this is not to say, this could easily flip into a buyers’ market one day!

Factors that that could slow that reversal are:

  1.     Baby boomers increased interest in small businesses.
  2.     Commercial accountants keen to work in Public Practice as owners
  3.     Economic conditions point towards an increase in Public Practice
  4.     Baby Boomers becoming more entrepreneurial

There will always be an increase for high quality accounting firms, it does not take an Einstein to work out that there is money to be made in any accounting Practice, you rarely do hear of accounting practices going belly up right?
