The good news? A lot less volatility.
By CPA Trendlines
After a period of rapid price increases, CPA firms appear to be backing off on rate hikes.
The price index for U.S. CPA firms reached 117.2 in August, representing a 15.1 percent price increase since the January 2005 baseline. This is the second time this year the index has reached this mark, with the other in March, and the highest point except for February’s 117.5. It denotes increases of 0.6 percent for the month and 0.3 percent for the year.
