CPA Firm Partner Compensation: The Art and Science


Our 3-partner firm recently purchased 7 Rosenberg books including partner compensation, partner agreements, succession planning and management/firm governance.   The books are a superlative blend of Marc’s years of consulting to medium and small CPA firms and the know-how that goes along with it. We are finding these books to be an excellent resource for ideas and a roadmap to guide the tough conversations that partners need to have regarding these key issues.

Partner compensation is the Holy Grail of CPA firm practice management. Firms have eternally searched for an income allocation system that is the fairest of all, makes everyone happy, is easy to administer and rewards performance.
