APS 2023 Head Start Program


Tax season will soon be upon us and will be a busy time for you. Accounting Practice Sales (APS) understands this; that’s why we developed the innovative Head Start program to help market your firm during tax season AND defer speaking with interested buyers until after April 15th.
Here’s how Head Start works: Starting now and through tax season, APS will promote your firm based on your latest results. This includes notification to our thousands of registered buyers, listing on our national website at www.APS.net, and inclusion in all our digital and traditional marketing campaigns. As we identify interested buyers, we’ll let them know you are unavailable until after April 15th. Since its implementation, Head Start has proven extremely successful for our sellers because it allows you to continue working uninterrupted, retain the revenue from tax season, and have interested buyers waiting once you’re ready. Some of these buyers may even wish to make an offer for your later consideration.

Head Start puts us to work for you at absolutely no cost until we sell your firm. Getting started is simple—minimal documentation and information is required. We’ll evaluate your firm and help you establish an asking price based on current market conditions. Whether you believe the economy is moving in the right direction or is full of risk, accounting and tax practices are more stable than many other industries and professions. Individuals and businesses will continue to need tax filings, financial statements, and other accounting services. With thousands of buyers looking to purchase practices, this is an ideal time to sell!

What's my practice worth?

It's one of the first questions most practitioners look to answer when starting to think about selling.
