I accepted a job offer at a start up in December; they told me that they would apply for GC on a case-by-case basis and usually after the employee has been there for at least 6 months. The company just filed my I-129 with USCIS on a premium processing yesterday. When I accepted the job offer, my current company paused their GC processing. I realized today that my current company has resumed GC application. Should I consider staying with the firm? My reason for leaving is job opportunity & growth

Have you noticed inflation and the general chaos we're moving through affecting your business and firm? Just asking for different perspectives here, not a political discussion.
Any firms that use CCH make sure your invoices are being checked carefully. We just reviewed ours and were over-billed the last 2 years. We were supposed to have discounts and the math wasn’t even correct across for the amount times the discount to the amount billed. The worst part is our rep then gave a bullshit story of how the list price was incorrect on the invoice but the amount billed was correct.
What are some key ways you balance stress and not taking it out on others/family? It's something I'm always working on but none of us are perfect. That said, I've made vast improvements. During the winter it's always harder as I feel many of my outlets are limited [like golf etc]
I started a firm with three other colleagues about a year and a half ago. We all came from the same bigger firm and now obviously we are considered a very small. We want to make our first hire and hire someone for around $100,000 as a manager to manage around $200,000 of work. They came back at $120,000. After taxes and benefits that’s $150k to manage and prepare $200k of work. Anyone own a smaller firm who can share opinion? How much work should one manage for that kind of salary?
I work a midsize regional firm and, no surprise, we are hemorrhaging staff. And it’s the good ones leaving. Some for family offices and industry positions, which I can understand. But others for smaller accounting firms as staff and seniors which just seems like a career killer to me. I’m convinced we need to do retention bonuses, raises, and recruit new talent by paying above market. Of course I’m a younger partner and don’t have the pull to actually make this happen. Thoughts?
Vaccine mandates over finally. Except for the unconstitutional hypocritical NYC mandate.
Where are all the accounting professionals going? Competitive pay and benefits aren’t enticing enough. People want work/life balance but how can firms provide that when the workforce supply is so low yet demand is at an all-time high. If technology is the answer are there firms that are successfully implementing solutions?

2nd year partner at a top 6 accounting firm. Have offer from big 4 for $200K more annually. Don’t really want to take it, but how can I not.? That’s approx a college education annually after tax. Should I try to negotiate or just take the money and jump ship. Feeling Seriously undervalued for what I’m bringing to the firm in terms of people building, sales, book of business. Hate to not be loyal, but $200K is $200K. Advice please
No judgment tax question. Would a covered deck extension and repair to be used for work purposes (home office) be classified a deductible business expense? Need guidance.
We are essentially an outsourced controller for our largest client. The owner is taking MASSIVE amounts of distributions over and above income. He’s essentially financed $1M in distributions from his LOC. We have spoken to him multiple times about this and the behavior never stops. What would you do here? Fire your largest client? Do you feel your reputation would be affected when this behavior comes to light? Inevitably it will when he bankrupts the company one day.
Newer partner and first time having extra money to invest. I’ve maxed my 401k contributions past few years and currently have the rest in a brokerage account. I’m planing for a lot more contributions the next ~20 years until I retire. What does everyone else do? Is the Roth IRA the way to go? 529 plans for the kids?
Anyone ever successfully negotiate their partner cash distributions? I’m a very new partner, yet running and growing a book far greater than average size for the firm. Am I stuck in the basic new partner comp structure for~ 5 years or is it reasonable to expect I’ll get compensated for my contributions today? I’m tired of chasing carrots; what’s a reasonable/ “fair” % of my book to expect allocated to me each year? Is 20% asking too much? I’m tax at a top 6 firm.
Why share this information with OP on a public forum?
It’s not hard information to find out and is openly shared with staff. It’s also a pretty compelling capital structure and could be useful to talent attraction. So, really, why not.
Deloitte Canada is number of units x 70% of prior year unit value. Can be fully financed and capital loan is interest only for as long as you’re a partner and they pay you about 65bps spread to bank capital loan rate.
At EY, it is structured as a percent of your draw.
Number of units times x amount. It’s not bad to be honest. 4 docusigns and it’s a done deal. Plus the firm pays you 100bps above the interest rate and it’s interest only payback for the first 2 years
% of target comp/draw
Doesn’t really matter - it’s never a barrier bc you can finance, make income on interest rate spread, and pay back over a long period at most firms.
Or never pay back at Deloitte 😊
