Accounting Firms Enjoy Top Profit Margins


In a recent posting to CPATrendlines it was noted that accounting firms top the list in profit margins.  According to data gathered from Sageworks, “Accounting firms have been earning 13.61% in pre-tax net profit margins over the last 12 months, …bested only by dentists and some financial institutions.”  The future is bright for accounting professionals.

This data demonstrates that regardless of the flailing economy, accounting practices are still thriving.  Have you considered launching a practice of you own working as a contract accountant?

Becoming a Contract Accountant

Contract accountant, freelance accountant, self-employed bookkeeper.  They’re all basically the same thing.  When you do contract work, you are in business for yourself, working for clients who can choose to employ your services long-term or temporarily.

And working from home as a contract accountant has never been more appealing, especially when you can earn, on average, $300 per client, per month.  Once you secure just 20 clients, you can be making $6000 per month; that’s $72,000 a year!

But that’s not the only perk in working from home.  Many contract accountants enjoy the following:

  • The opportunity to offer a service in high demand
  • A flexible work schedule
  • An enhanced standard of living
  • A satisfying occupation
  • The ability to call the shots
  • A low-expense business

If you’re not already in business for yourself, now is the time to launch your own practice.
