4. Fair Usage and Partner Definition

The 20:20 Innovation member is responsible for providing 20:20 Innovation with a current and accurate ‘partner’ headcount at the start of each membership period, for the purposes of establishing membership benefits and pricing. ‘We use partner numbers to broadly estimate the amount of technical training and other support that your firm requires. In terms of defining a partner, we count any partner, director or similar who is a general practice portfolio holder and takes ultimate responsibility for the services provided to their portfolio of clients (without anyone else routinely reviewing their work). This could include both equity and non-equity partners of a partnership and both shareholders and Directors of a company. It would not include managers who hold a portfolio but whose work is all undertaken in the name of and/or reviewed by a separately named partner.

It is acceptable for non-general practice partners to be excluded from the headcount i.e. those who run teams or services outside of taxation, audit, financial reporting, management accounting, advisory and compliance. For example, you may exclude financial services partners, corporate finance partners and HR partners. The managing partner or principal should always be included in the headcount. This can be judgmental and so to ensure full transparency and mutual fairness, we ask you to disclose your headcount basis and assumptions to us, if there is any area of uncertainty. Our friendly team are always on hand to advise and will ensure a consistent and fair approach across our client base.

It is not possible to take out a membership just for a certain person or team. All general practice partners of your firm must be included. Our membership is however very cost competitive and there are a range of ways in which all teams can benefit.

Please inform us of any changes to partner numbers during your membership period. In most cases, this will not affect your membership price but it will enable us to process your next renewal efficiently. We do reserve the right to increase the current membership fee in circumstances of partner growth achieved by acquiring another firm.

Given increasing changes to a ‘typical’ accountancy practice structure, the following maximum whole-firm headcounts apply within each membership band. It is the responsibility of the 20:20 Innovation member to monitor and inform 20:20 Innovation should their whole practice headcounts exceed these numbers:

  • Sole practitioner - 20 individuals
  • 2-5 partner - 100 individuals
  • 6-9 partner - 180 individuals
  • 10-15 partner - 300 individuals

Membership pricing is based on singular practices / legal entities. 20:20 Innovation also offers training and support to networks, associations and other groups or cohorts of practices. Please contact us for pricing and terms in these circumstances.
