CA Firms and CATOs
The CA Firms and CATOs (CA Training Offices) section of this website provides information: registering a new CA practice; updating existing practice information; member and practice advisory support - articles and FAQs; online listings of practices for sale or practices wanted; and information and forms for the Practice Inspection Program, and information on benefits that have been negotiated with third parties on behalf of firms (which may or may not be available to CATOs).
The Practitioners' Toolkit is an online portal specially designed to assist members in public practice or those contemplating a career change. It provides step-by-step guidance for setting up and managing the small and medium-sized practice process, offering information on everything from how to get started, to building your practice, to managing an already established practice. For tools, advice and professional resources on how to develop your practice - no matter what stage you are in - visit the Practitioners' Toolkit.
The requirements set out in the Act for qualification for appointment as a public accountant are of interest to members, firms and professional corporations who conduct, or wish to be appointed to conduct, audit or review engagements for federally incorporated not-for-profit corporations.
Your firm (whether a national firm or a sole practitioner) can take on a coordination role by providing volunteers at a clinic co-sponsored with an agency at their location. Join our team of volunteers and become a champion of the Free CA Tax Clinics in your community!
