Business Description

Well-established San Francisco Bay Area accounting practice, focusing primarily on tax return preparation for small to mid-sized businesses as well as for individual tax returns. Revenues in 2019 were about $316,000 from about 260 clients. Almost two thirds of the clients have been with the firm for at least five years.

This practice is available for sale as it presently exists with a staff of 3 full-time and two part-time employees or an existing practice could acquire the clients. The current owner is a CPA, but this business could be operated by an Enrolled Agent.

The current owner has limited involvement in the firm due to health reasons and it is managed by a person willing to stay or leave as a new owner wishes. If a new owner assumes the manager’s position, the net profits could more than double.
