Careers in small practice have held less appeal for up and coming accountants in recent years, as more find themselves drawn to the perks that come with working in Big Four firms or in the finance function of large companies.
As such, the entrepreneurial talent that is needed for partner roles is becoming harder to find. Many accountants that come through the ranks are trained to develop strong technical skills but they just don’t have the commercial or business skills required to run a small to medium accountancy practice.
