Square Feet Per Person

“There is nothing like staying at home for real comfort.” – Jane Austen

A firm administrator, managing partner or a firm owner faces many things as they try to effectively and profitably manage a growing, successful accounting firm.

One question that might arise is how much office space do we need? It is usually computed via using square feet per person. Of course, now it is even more complex because you have many people working remotely.

Nevertheless, I thought some numbers might be of interest to you. Here are some examples I gathered a few years ago from some actual firms.

  • Firm #1 – 295 sq. ft. per person
  • Firm #2 – 270
  • Firm #3 – 224
  • Firm #4 – 253
  • Firm #5 – 290
  • Firm #6 – 280
  • Firm #7 – 254
  • Firm #8 – 282
  • Firm #9 – 275
  • Firm #10 – 300
  • Firm #11 – 178
