First step is to determine what type of accounting business you want to start. You should know how big of a firm you will put up, how many people you want to work with, and what accounting services you would want to offer to clients. A typical small firm consists of two to three partners, one to two administrative staff, and caters to individuals for tax preparation or to small businesses for accounting, auditing, and tax services. Your own expertise may also decide on what type of services you will offer.
