Overview

This Practice Management webinar session on “Client Relationship Management” forms part of a series of presentations on practice management for small and medium practices based on IFAC’s Practice Manual for SMP’s.

The relationship accountants have with their clients is fundamental to the value of the accountancy firm. Increased competition demands that accountants shore up their client relationships so that clients are less vulnerable to persuasion from competitors.

Establishing a deeper client relationship makes good commercial sense. It has been established over a number of surveys that it costs far less to retain a client than it does to acquire a new one. This should be of particular interest to accountants, who are often very concerned with matters relating to cost and cost management.
