The National Benchmarking Report


For close to 30 years, INSIDE Public Accounting (IPA) has conducted the IPA Annual Survey and Analysis of Firms, one of the longest-running and most comprehensive Management of an Accounting Practice (MAP) surveys in the U.S.

The resulting annual IPA National Benchmarking Report is one of the most complete, independent, up-to-date sets of economic and management statistics available about the accounting profession. The report contains data, broken out by revenue bands, geographical regions and firms can compare their firm data against the annual IPA Best of the Best firms and more.

How does your firm compare to your peers? Where does your firm rank among the largest firms in the nation? Which firms will be named to the Best of the Best list?

Maintaining confidentiality is a responsibility that IPA takes seriously. Our uncompromising commitment is the foundation of our business, and we appreciate the trust that hundreds of firms have placed in our company to gather data and present it in this report.

Consider IPA as a resource as you review your benchmarking and performance improvement opportunities. Invite IPA, by webinar or in person, to make a customized presentation at your next partner retreat. IPA can delve deeper into the trends and provide detailed information on specific areas of interest.
