Practice Management and Business Growth Community

Practice Management Issues

Questions about software, e-file issues, licensing & exams, CPE, fees, obtaining and keeping clients, fees, collections, RALs, PTINs, EFINs, ERO questions, etc. are appropriate here, along with issues like hiring and training employees and/or subcontractors, purchasing office equipment, handling clients, etc.

Business Growth

Are you interested in growing your business? How do you increase your client base? How do you get off the ground in the first year or two? What alternative income streams are available? What about maintaining/managing your practice? Hiring and managing new people?

This TaxAlmanac forum is focused on just these questions and more - even though it's titled the "Business Growth Community" Forum, it's the appropriate place for all discussions about both practice growth and practice management.
