Many CPAs struggle to find new methods for managing their time -- especially during the height of tax season. When they refer to "distractions" and "interruptions", they usually mean contact with staff and clients. Of approximately 40,000 CPAs in the US alone, around 30,000 have solo practices or one assistant. That certainly limits time with staff...and limits income. A growing client list means more income, but also requires the CPA to manage client contact. This means relinquishing most of the actual accounting work. The problem then becomes finding talented people to perform the work. Fortunately, the pool of talent from which to choose may be located anywhere in the world. Work can be performed remotely -- even tax preparation -- thanks to technology such as that available from myrealdata.com. Why are CPAs reluctant to implement this type of solution? It seems to permit growth for a firm, provide accesses to the best workers, reduce costs, and allow time for founding CPAs to better serve their clients.
