The specifics aren’t relevant, I just want to vent.
Let’s say one would normally prepare accounts under accounting policy A.
Client: I want you to prepare the mgmts under B.
Me: are you sure? That’s not what you’d normally do.
Me: you know that we’ll have to prepare the year-end accounts under A, so when the bank see them they’ll ask why they’re so different.
me: you still want me to do them under B?
Me: ok, but I’ll send you a schedule each time with the adjustments that we would normally have made.
Present day (a number of months later) - polite version of client’s email
client: I’m changing accountant
client: the bank say that accounts haven’t been prepared normally.
WTF I get he needs to keep the bank happy, but given the reasons, does he have to be so nasty about it?
