In the articles on the right menu bar, I explain the basic corporate, business and contract law issues for accountancy corporations and accounting practices in California.
I talk about accountancy corporations from beginning to end, that is from forming or buying the accounting practice to leaving, closing or selling it. Along the way I discuss basic contracts, including accountant employment agreements, accountant independent contractor agreements, shareholder buy-sell agreements, and accountant exit / severance agreements. I explain how to bring a new accountant into a practice and how non-competition clauses work when the accountant leaves the practice.
