Consistency in the accountancy profession
When it comes to the bottom line and owner performance there is no norm. Some owners charge fewer than 500 hours to clients, others more than 1,500. Some owners I know make a profit of less than £15,000 while others are making in excess of £400,000. Some owners expect to leave their firm with nothing other than the return of their capital account while others expect to be rewarded with a payment for goodwill. Some (sadly only a few) have their retirement adequately funded – most have had to lower their expectations on what their income is in retirement.
Apply my management techniques and they will make a difference.
