Buying and selling a practice

    Hi friends,

    I received two requests over the weekend for any info I had on buying or selling an accounting practice, and sent the attached.  This file includes Q&As that I posted and that are included in my two books each with 101 Q&As.  I pretty much stopped posting new Q&As since almost all of the questions I now get deal with something I covered in the over 250 Q&As I posted at  I usually send what I already have covered such as the attached.  If I get a new question, then I call the sender to discuss with her or him, so don't hesitate to contact me with your practice management questions.  Email me at .


    I also attached the practice continuation tool kit (that I posted previously) since the continuation agreement letter laying out the price and terms can be used as a model for your selling or purchase price and terms.  We used that as the price and terms for three practices we purchased.
