How we increased margins and maximized profitability for Canadian CPA firm
The client is a well known medium-sized accounting firm based out of Vancouver. Their clients are mainly from small and medium-sized businesses and contractors in IT, banking, healthcare, pharma, and finance-related industries. They also offer tax planning and wealth management services by partnering with various industry-leading groups. Most of their practice management and tax filing work is automated and they use various software solutions for different accounting activities.
Our client operates from an office in Vancouver and their main concern was on increasing their clientele and reducing their Operational cost and reduce the burden on their Senior Managers and thereby help them meet the work completion deadline on time. One of the biggest challenges they were facing was their senior staff was engaged in doing the least important work such as training, reviewing the documentation received from the clients and follow up with the clients to get the additional required information and also reviewing the work of the junior Accountants whereby these managers could have been used to engage the client and cross-sell services like Assurance and Advisory or get some referrals from the client and thereby increase clientele. They needed to identify a solution that would help their Operations cost and deploy their Managers on a role that would increase their Clientele and also increase the revenue by selling additional services and thereby minimizing expenditure and at the same time ensure the quality is intact.
