According to The Leverich Group, a recent poll of CPAs across the country were asked “In tough economic times, how can businesses ensure they’ll stay afloat?” Of the 215 CPAs that responded, 150 said “Taking better care of existing customers.” A distant second in the poll was “improve cash flow management.” Third was “retain employees.” Asked the top five concerns of business owners today, the CPAs overwhelmingly named the state of the economy as the top concern. Finding and keeping good employees was the next biggest concern. CPAmerica International conducted the poll of its members, including The Leverich Group.
