Ah, the timesheet. Not the CPAs worst enemy, but certainly in the top five. You already know why timesheets are such a pain, but just to torture you a bit, here are the reasons we don’t like them:
- They’re (ironically?) time-consuming to fill out
They punish CPAs who work quickly, regardless of the value of your work
They reward you for how long you work, rather than how much you actually produce
And as you’re well aware, timesheets make particularly little sense when performing fixed-fee audits. Tracking hours will have no effect on the economics or timing of the job, and can paradoxically reward workers who are the least efficient.
It’ll probably be a cold day in you-know-where before the Big 4 get rid of timesheets. Luckily, more progressive firms are moving away from the timesheet and toward value pricing—a model that compensates you for what you actually do, not how long it takes you to do it.
We found one such firm that’s looking to hire. They operate in Jacksonville and Tampa, Florida. They’re called Assurance Dimensions, and here’s what they’re all about:
- As we alluded to, they don’t require timesheets—no recording of hours in any way
- Compensation is market rate plus bonuses after busy season and 401(k) season; overall a very competitive compensation plan
- They are hiring a Senior and Staff in Jacksonville and a Senior in Tampa
If you like auditing, hate timesheets, and want the opportunity to make significantly more money than you would at a traditional firm, Assurance Dimensions might be the right place for you. Check out this job profile to learn more.
