Let your voice be heard!
The CPA profession’s premier benchmarking study, AICPA PCPS/ National MAP Survey provides an unprecedented opportunity to compare your firm to other firms of similar size within your region in key areas of firm practice management. Participating firms will receive a FREE personalized report.


How does your firm stack up against others in the profession? Curious about the latest technology trends in firms around the country? How are you and others leveraging staff in the current economy?

The survey covers key practice management issues that will allow your firm to compare its financial performance and operations to other firms, as well as gain strategic insights into building a more profitable and rewarding practice. Additionally, survey results will help accounting firms benchmark themselves against same-sized firms regionally and nationally.

Targeted benchmarks include billing rates, chargeability ratios, compensation, and other key performance indicators. The value of these benchmarks depends on broad participation among CPA firms.

The survey is streamlined annually for easier completion and increased relevance. If you’ve taken the survey before, you’ll find updated content and questions that reflect practice management issues facing today’s firms.


Each participant will receive a free personalized report that contains an overview of key performance metrics from the survey such as billing rates, salaries, hours charged/compensated, services as a percentage of fees, major income statement statistics and more. The comprehensive report – free to PCPS members – will include even more performance metrics, as well as a host of additional ratios and statistical analysis and access to the dynamic platform.


This survey is brought to you by the AICPA’s PCPS (Private Companies Practice Section) and, who are pleased to welcome back Aon Insurance Services as a proud survey sponsor.
