I agree with some, though not all, of this I had a mental meltdown just over 2 weeks ago and had to be dug out of my flat in London and sent to stay, after consultation with my doctor, with kind friends in the country. If we are really struggling sometimes it's not enough just to point to where to get help sometimes you need to take them there. I have received medication and help and am pretty much back to normal . But thank you very much for the article.

quickbooks and other packages connect with Taxfiler and work seamlessly. is this sort of integration not a better way to go?

it's all too little too late this is bog standard stuff that accountants should be on top of anyway and generally pretty banal

i agree Paddy the bagging policy is quite clear if you make a mistake its your fault. i am much more concerned by over charging accountants who have an inflated sense of their own self worth than this nonsense

to me when i was articled in 73-78 auditing was all about procedures and there were no computers. this was wrong and has never really gone away. start with the BS at the year end and work backwards first from that date before moving forward. it is alleged that in the case of PV they moved cheques between the companies which inflated the year end balance but these were reduced when the cheques bounced shortly after, very basic, so much for a review of PBSE. Sending out trainees without any experience and charging them out at over £100 is simply racketeering and its about time the pen pushers at the Institutes got to grip with these matters. but then again i have a tendency to go soft
