Should Aweb have an ads section?

For recruitment, pracrtice and fee sales etc.

Didn't find your answer?

There's nowhere here to post ads for accountancy related things (we have ebay for eveything else), jobs, practices, signed copies of Frank Wood etc. Might it be a good idea to have such a section? If so, free or paid for?

We used to have it and it was removed, presumably there was a reason for that but it's not something that Sift ever divulged, to my knowledge.

I take it this will not extend to links to stream boxing?

A site to sell all my back issues of Taxation and totally redundant old accountancy texts would be very useful five years from now.

I still have a very dated Spicer & Pegler on Audit, Carter's Advanced Accounts and I think somewhere there is an accounting textbook from circa 1900 , Munro's I think, that I picked up in a charity shop years ago.

In addition there are a couple of old costs accounting books (Biggs and Wharton) an ICAEW handbook re Standard Costing, Gee on consolidations and Charles Scott on Trust Accounting, plus other similar treasures

More useful might be the multiple years of Whillans and some very out of date Tolley's annuals scuffing about the office, plus a couple of folders with very old Accounts Digests and Tax Digests, I even spotted on the shelves my 1986 guidance notes to SSAP 21; I must have worked in a dishonest office as I note it has my name and the year written inside and a sticker on the outside with my initials on same

Sorry to disappoint but my corporate finance books , share valuation books and more recent accountancy books will not be for sale, whilst I may give up accountancy I will not be giving up investing and I also need to ensure there is some total crap in our bookcases at home for our kids to eventually have to offload.

Somewhere to advertise Audi TTs to Auditors and for the lucky owner of reg number AUD 1T to try and flog it again?

You got me looking ... and I've found UG02 FAR.
I can put up £80, but would need another £13,000 to complete the purchase.
If all the people who keep telling me "you go too far" contribute a £1, then I'll probably make a profit!

My employer years ago purchased V8GFY to give as a present to a friend, obviously useful as a message for the driver behind as you roar away.

Especially if the driver being left behind was in a car powered by a Wankel engine.

I've finally relented and let my mum/wife (two people) clear out a corner in our house that was full of old textbooks etc...

I have told them if they throw away my copy of Frank Wood's Business Accounting I will never speak to them again. That must remain with me until I die.

We found a 1951 edition of Pitman’s Book-Keeping for Beginners in the loft of my house when we moved in. It covers the syllabus for the elementary exams set by the Royal Society of Arts and the London Chamber of Commerce so seems it pre-dates any current bodies.
Not quite up to Frank Wood’s standard, but it is about a quarter of the size, with everything put very succinctly (and a heavy use of Capital Letters throughout).

I think this is a great idea. I am always on eBay looking for books and browsing for anything accountancy related.
A definite yes from me. I prefer it to be free of course, but I would pay if it was worth it.

Well, subject to the size of our new office (I think a downsize is on the cards next year) accordingly my old Taxation magazines could be free to a good home, I think I have virtually all of them from 2002 to 2009, plus the indexes. (Cardboard magazine holders included), so bring your tax knowledge up to date, or at least into the 21st century.

I may even also have some 16 column cash sheets scuffing about in a filing cabinet and there could also be a bottle of hardened Tippex in that drawer.

I know somewhere I have a headed, pre 1985, Chalmers Impey two sided auditing pad (part used) plus a late 1990s Grant Thornton set of A-Z audit file card dividers , but these I do want to keep for my soon to be launched accountancy and tax themed pub chain, Debits & Credits, with guaranteed free tax advice from Les, the Plumber, who will be seated on the right hand (Credit) barstool all day, every day, buy him a pint and he will approve any tax idea you can think up.

Hi DJKL,
Sorry for the delay in responding; I was looking for magazines and memos that I purchased about a year ago to check they are not the same, and it seems not as mine are just called newsletters, all 45 of them.
I'd be extremely grateful if you could keep me in mind if you do decide to downsize, please.
The newsletters I have are eight years old, but they're a wealth of information; I read them mainly because they are introductions and snippets to rules, laws, allowances etc., that I did not know existed, but now that I do, I can research the current status, so still very relevant in that respect.
I'll leave the Tippex for now, though I may PM you when I've realised it is an offer I should not have refused :-)
I could PayPal you the fee with just your email address or whatever you would prefer, so yes, please do keep me in mind if you will. I'd be thrilled to bits with them, and thank you very much.

Edit: Postage fee I meant, I didn't want you thinking I hadn't read your post properly.

Have sent you a PM, magazines are all yours should you want them. (Hours of reading, I used to love the Any Answers section in Taxation, but do remember a lot will be superseded by more recent legislation and case law)
