A confident business woman stands ready to change her life.Start a Practice YOU Can Count on:
Your Own Accounting Practice

There are few things in life you can count on, especially when it comes to your career. But if you’ve always wanted to start your own accounting practice, you couldn’t have picked a better path. Within two months you could start your own business, a business you can count on to bring you professional satisfaction and a plush new lifestyle for you and your family.

Accountants: A Service in High-Demand

For over a decade the demand for accountants and bookkeepers has been increasing. Brent Inman of PricewaterhouseCoopers said, “It’s clearly one of the hottest markets (for accountants) that I’ve seen.” Consider the accounting forecast recently released by the US Department of Labor. For years Universal Accounting Center℠ (UAC) has proudly shared prior reports that by 2008 accounting jobs would increase by 20%. That great forecast has been extended to 2014! They predict “Employment of accountants and auditors is expected to grow faster than average for all occupations through the year 2014. As the economy grows, the number of business establishments will increase, requiring more accountants and auditors to set up books, prepare taxes, and provide management advice.” The future is bright for freelance accountants!

A Lucrative Niche Market: Small Businesses

Over 85% of the opportunities in the accounting field are within small businesses. In fact, Universities prepare their students for corporate accounting which doesn’t address small business needs. And more than 50% of small businesses fail within the first five years, and much of that failure can be attributed to lack of accounting expertise. Those small business owners need an accountant who can address their small business accounting needs. Imagine contributing to the success of local small businesses, which will build your own community while providing you with job satisfaction and security. As you focus on small-business accounting you cater to a niche market in great need of your services.

You CAN Start Your Own Accounting Practice

There’s no time like the present to start your own accounting practice. Perhaps you have fantasized about being your own boss, working as little or as much as you’d like, calling the shots, and catapulting you and your family into a new and improved lifestyle. And luckily, you’re zeroing in on a profitable business opportunity. Of all the home business options, a Bookkeeping and Accounting practice is considered by some to be one of the best. In fact, Paul and Sarah Edwards, authors of The Best Home Businesses for the 21st Century, rate a bookkeeping service as the “Best of the Best” home-based businesses.

There are many reasons why an accounting practice makes so much sense. Here’s a list of some of those reasons:

  • Every business is required by law to keep books
  • You can earn a good living (the average client will bring in about $300 per month)
  • It’s an inexpensive business to start (you probably have most of what is required right now)
  • No expensive equipment is required
  • You can make money doing what you enjoy
  • You can work anytime, any place
  • Rented office space is not required
  • Inventory is not required

A Four-Year Degree is NOT required

But I don’t want to put my life on hold while I take four years to get a university degree. Is that the thought running through your mind? While performing accounting and bookkeeping tasks do require specialized training, accounting instruction does not have to take place on a university campus. Nor does it require a degree. You can learn all you need to know about small-business accounting in less than 60 hours with Universal Accounting Center℠’s (UAC) Professional Bookkeeper™ (PB) Program.

Universal’s PB Program Will Help You Start Your Own Accounting Practice

A laptop sits on a dining room table.This accounting course has evolved over the last 25 years into a comprehensive program in doing the day-to-day bookkeeping of a small business. The principles also apply exceptionally well to larger companies as our graduates have found. You not only get the theory taught in college, but you are taught by practical examples of real-world companies. From a bakery to a car lot, you will do books for 9 businesses and see how they are similar and how they differ. Our focus on small business accounting will give you the practical background you need to perform accounting for the majority of companies out there where few have the skills and training that you will acquire from the Professional Bookkeeper™ Program. Add to that the fact that you can complete the course on your own time and at your own pace and you have an ideal training program.
