"Universal Accounting School is a one stop shop for anyone looking to open your own accounting firm. I began my journey with UAS at the beginning of 2021 by taking the Professional Tax Preparer program. The material was easy to get through because I already had some experience with preparing taxes, BSBA Accounting program with CPA focus. UAS went into great detail about the new tax laws that were implemented from 2018 (TCJA) and all the current changes that occurred during the pandemic. What I wasn’t expecting was a detailed turn-key system on how to run my tax business. There is an entire section that gives you marketing strategies that I can attest and say that they work! They really work! I applied everything that was suggested and my first official tax year was a big success. It was so successful that I decided to take the Profit & Growth, Virtual Bookkeeper Roadmap, and Universal Business Builder program. PHENOMENAL! Everyone at UAS is invested in your success and celebrate your wins. They have weekly and monthly meeting to help you along your journey. I’m exceedingly satisfied with the level of thought that went into these program and how effective the strategies have been in my business. They say you’re in business for yourself but not by yourself. They really mean it! Now, you have to do the work in order for this to work. So if you’re afraid to roll up your sleeves and get to work then opening an accounting firm isn’t for you. Thank you UAS! Your program was more insightful than my BSBA 😂."
