An interesting article called “Millennials are The Future of Accounting Firms” discusses the reasons why Millennials will be the next big client group by year 2020.
Millennials start their first business around age 27 vs. Baby boomers who started their first business around age 35. And as a whole, Millennials have launched twice as many businesses as Baby boomers.
Millennials also love the idea of leaving the corporate workforce and starting their own business. Over 62% of Millennials have considered starting their own business which is significantly higher then any generation in the past.
With owning their own businesses Millennials will need a tax accountant and financial strategies to help them take care of their books and achieve their goals. Building a good rapport with this generation will ensure repeat business for many years to come.
