From a licensing standpoint, Pennsylvania is as moderated and even-keeled as its founders. Although the Commonwealth regulates a number of industries, it doesn't go as far as many states. Even better, it keeps its forms and processes relatively simple and clear. Businesses in what was once known as America's Breadbasket won't find their hands tied when trying to establish themselves.
In Pennsylvania, accounting services can be tax preparation services, personal accounting or management accounting businesses. Typically, states regulate such professional organizations, but in some cases cities and counties also require special business licenses for them. Accounting firms are held accountable for their professional conduct and often answer to a state accountancy board.
