So it was looked into, investigated and he he to get some re training.
Should be the end of it really, not everyone in the disciplinary process is guilty, and not all should be sacked at the end of it.
By leaving the 2 women concerned have probably damaged their own careers, would have made a greater impact if they stayed and just did a good job and proved their worth. Why would you quit a partner level job with a Big 4 firm because you are unhappy with the outcome of disciplinary.
I wonder if the 2 who left would expect to be automatically fired if they were subject any disciplinary action.
That's why find and recode was invented. I guess it depends on how his [***] up was communicated to him if he took offence and went elsewhere.
The other firm maybe did not see it as that much of an issue to repost the general expenses to the correct headings as it is [***] easy with find and recode.
No one actively endorses MTD, however most have just proactively got on with it and made sure their clients will be ready.
Some on the other hand are still twisting about in the hope it will be cancelled even though its now an actual thing.
Xero and FreeAgent pretty much do a walk through when setting up as you suggest, takes a few minutes to setup correctly.
Not sure about the others.
For me, you have to be involved in the first 6 weeks of the setup. The software works on repetition, so if recurring entries are setup correctly that will follow on through the year if errors are made they will also occur throughout the year.
On jobs where we are engaged as year end accountants (so not doing VAT returns) we still go into the software regularly through the year to nip errors in the bud and it gives excuse to catch up with the client.
It doesn't cost the client extra as we find the time spent in year comes off what we need to do if we did it 1 hit at the year end.
If someone was just starting up now with cloud software I certainly would not wait until 12 months was up before I looked at it.
The cloud gives us access we never had with sage, however I do see many accountants using cloud in the same way they did as desktop software, logging in 4 times a year to do the VAT etc which for me is not a good way of doing it, although at the other end of the scale my clients do not need (or pay for if it is a premium service) daily bookkeeping, which I see many accountants now offer/market as their key service.
I have a few clients come to me after buying QBO from the adverts with no external involvement and hash it right up.
Nonsense if the client is doing his own VAT he must have known he was doing it on a cash basis and not invoice.
If tax payers don't understand the tax system, they shouldn't be trying to do it themselves.
He has failed to check his numbers before he sent it the software is only as good as the people using it.
With cloud accounting you should have more regular input from the external accountant to check its set up right and looks reasonable.
As for letting them mess it up and then charge them over the top to correct it at the year end, that is terrible way to look after clients and will see the relationship will be a short one.
