For more than 15 years, GBA has been collecting key financial metrics from member-firms so our members can measure their success, improve business performance, and optimize efficiency.  The newest GBA Business Brief —  is free for all members and compiles data from GBA Business Practices Committee’s 2018-19 Financial-Performance Survey in a short report, covering key financial-performance issues of surveyed firms.

GBA further enhanced this year’s report with more data and trendlines so our members can track their progress on key financial indicators.

In the spirit of our Association, GBA publications are a collaborative effort of GBA Member-Firms.  They are provided to GBA Members to make them stronger, smarter and more successful and they are FREE to all members.


Thank You!

GBA’s success is based on 50 years of collaboration and we continue to thrive because our members are willing to share information that helps each other and elevates our profession.                                                                                                                           

Thank you to all who completed this year’s financial survey.  Our response rate was  31% of member firms completing the survey which was supported by a whopping 70% of member firms in two categories (net fees $10M to $20M and net fees exceeding $100M).

Thank you to those firms that did not complete the survey but let us know why. Your feedback will help us to improve the survey in the future. A special thanks to Lee James (Lee James & Associates) and GBA’s Controller, Phil Pettway, for collaborating on the survey and for their efforts compiling of the results.

Lastly, thank you to all our GBA Ambassadors for sharing this information with your companies.  Your efforts to distribute GBA reference material enhances the value of membership to all your employees.
