Running your CPA firm remotely? How accountants work from home successfully

Read on to learn specific steps to take and insights into how you can manage your firm remotely, efficiently and effectively

Remote accounting work is on the rise. Even before the COVID-19 pandemic, CPA firms had begun embracing the benefits of cloud-based practices, empowering their accountants and staff to perform their duties and tasks from practically any computer, tablet or mobile device. Advancements in technology have resulted in remote accounting work increasingly becoming the norm, as employee expectations and desires shift, and firms discover the benefits that exist when working outside the constraints of a traditional bricks-and-mortar office.

ConvergenceCoaching, 2018) of all accounting firms had already been building a work-from-home culture into their practices before the global crisis and mandatory quarantine gripped the world.
