WIP

How is the WIP not more than 30 days achievable. With lots of small clients you would end up spending more time on admin billing that was practical. As a sole trader the admin and QA side of the practice is a real challenge, not lease because I am competing in a small market town with unregulated competitors.

WIP

Agreed. A fair percentage of a small practice's WIP will always be over 30 days, it's unavoidable.
