Accounting & Bookkeeping Business Plan

Accounting & Bookkeeping Business Plan

Max Greenwood CPA in Chicago, Illinois is the owner and operator of The Sorcerer&#8217 s Accountant. The firm provides small-business clients with tax accounting, management accounting, QuickBooks setup and training. To expand beyond a single person business, the company will also offer bookkeeping services for smaller businesses. This will require investments in marketing and staff to increase the business’s expansion to this new business. This business plan organizes strategy and tactics for business expansion, and sets objectives for growth over three years.

The company will provide bookkeeping services to clients with the supervision of a CPA at an affordable price. This involves the hiring of undergraduate students as bookkeepers and graduate students as managers. Fixed costs are kept as low as possible and Sorcerer’s Accountant continues to expand its expertise through its website resources. The effect will be sales more than doubling over three years as 8 part-time bookkeepers are deployed to client businesses as needed, and salary and dividends to Greenwood increase substantially.


The Sorcerer&#8217’s Accountant plans to launch a new service -#8211 small business bookkeeping -#8211 – which will be offered the same clients that Sorcerer&#8217s Accountant currently offers.
