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 (sadly only a few) have their retirement adequately funded – most have had to lower their expectations on what their income is in retirement.
