poll of more than 100 CPA firm leaders conducted by IPA reveals that the clear majority are bullish on hiring professional staff and increasing the equity partner group, at least in the short term, by 2019.
When it comes to the number of equity partners in 2019, firm leaders predicted a greater decrease than that of professional staff. O
verall, 22% projected a decrease of up to 15%. Firms in the $30 million to $50 million range predict the biggest decrease in equity partners, with 22% planning to see a drop of 1% to 5%, and 22% predicting a decrease of between 6% and 15%.
