The Practice Structure Guide is a valuable and popular tool for members of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in Australia (the Institute) deciding upon or reviewing their existing practice structures. This guide, developed by HLB Mann Judd (NSW), forms part of a suite of tools and resources for accountants in practice offered by the Institute. The operating environment for Chartered Accountants in practice is as challenging as it is rewarding. Increasing client expectations regarding business and personal wealth management; the expanding breadth and variety of services and advice that Chartered Accountants can provide; the changing regulatory environment; and the complexity of compliance and reporting requirements are all factors in this continually shifting discipline. Establishing an efficient practice involves comprehensive planning and execution. There are many thought processes and decisions that are necessary when setting up a new practice or restructuring to improve the effectiveness of your practice. This guide is designed to lead you through some of the key steps in establishing a practice using the Chartered Accounting designation. To ensure you receive the most up-to-date information, both the guide and the CD version contain many links to third party materials and the Institute website.
