PUBLIC PRACTICE – BY THE NUMBERS
Understanding public practice starts with an understanding of who our clients are. For the majority of CPAs in public practice, that means understanding small business.
I think the public at large would be surprised at how important small business is to our economy. For Canada as a whole small business accounts for 41.7% of ALL jobs.
That is more than either so-called large businesses or the public sector.
They would probably just as surprised at how very small these businesses are. In fact 95% of all businesses in Canada have fewer than 20 employees.
