Loooking for oldest practicing Accountant on AW

I do not have any plans to retire, health permitting I intend to carryon for as long as I can.

I have a long way to go before getting to 60. I would be grateful to hear from 65+ years old practicing accountants. The older the better. It would be great to hear from 80 year old in practice. I intend to be one (I hope!).  I may even go to an accountancy franchior open day on my 80th birthday to talk about 10 year growth strategy! Constraining factor - my death!

Are clients okay with extra mature accountants? Don't they think passed it? Will he/she be able to do the work now?

I was surprised and pleased to see a question from a 50+ year old thinking of starting a practice - great!

I think accountancy is of one of those careers where we can carryon as long as health and brain function allows.

The sad fact about life is that youth is wasted on the young.
