Join me in a conversation about the world of specialization with Catherine Tindall, founder of Dominion Enterprise Services.  Catherine’s area of expertise lies within her ability to craft precise credit and income tax planning strategies, particularly focused on the Employee Retention Credit (ERC).  In this episode, Catherine shares her rationale for choosing to specialize in ERC, including where her practice will head in a post-ERC world.  Together, we dive deep into the complex history of ERC, the future for professionals assisting in ERC, and the importance of understanding eligibility determinations for practitioners venturing into this specialty.

This podcast touched on:

  • Deciding why, how, and what to specialize in within your firm

Following the 80/20 principle, Catherine reveals how focusing on a niche not only adds value to clients but also propels business growth. Join us for a conversation that explores the nuances of specialization, the challenges in the accounting industry, and the endless growth opportunities.
