While the festive cheer (and self assessment season) continues to ramp up in December, AccountingWEB’s editors have been busy preparing the site’s editorial calendar for 2018.

While our key aim on the site has been (and always will be) to produce content that helps accountants do their jobs better, we are constantly looking for new ways to deliver this, from expert technical analysis and breaking news through to live webcasts, podcasts and other rich media formats.

To help deliver this, the editorial team has devised content plans for the key people who make up the AccountingWEB community. For the year ahead we’ve broken down by month the following topics:
