Still wondering whether you can keep working as an accountant from home? Like every other job that has gone remote, you can keep doing your accounting job from your home too!

Accounting is not an easy task. Whether it is tax season or not, accountants are always busy behind the scenes, working round the clock. Most accountants work anywhere between 45-50 hours a week. During the tax season, hours can go up to 60, or even more in some cases.
