Accounting companies are almost entirely service based unless they sell applications like integrated QuickBooks add-on software. So a good chart of accounts for accountants will be set up accounts based on services such as:
- Payroll Processing
- QuickBooks Consulting and Training
- Integrating Software with QuickBooks
- Customizing Reports
- Tax Preparation
- Financial Planning
- Cash Flow Analysis
- Financial Analysis
- Bank Reconciliation
- Month End Closing Process
- Monthly Management Reporting
- Job Costing
- Joint Venture Accounting
- Property Cost Accounting
Setting up your income accounts depends on what kind of services you provide. If you have only one main service, you may just have one Accounting Services income account. If you offer multiple services, perhaps tax preparation along with bookkeeping services, it is recommended that you create an income account for each one.
