I said the system ie QuickBooks, and not saying they are technology dolts. I am glad your Sage and Xero clients do not have to learn how to use them.
Sorry you are wrong again, QuickBooks has journal numbers. It seems the clients you have do not use the system properly. They can either manually enter the number who use the automatic numbering.
By the way I am a qualified and experienced accountant and I love QuickBooks because explaining things to clients is easy as I don't need jargons to confuse them.
Incidentally I am also a Certified Xero Partner and support FreeAgent too.
My issue here is the fact that you are making statements about a product that you seemed not to know much about.
If you are looking for Desktop software then I will recommend QuickBooks or Finance Co-ordinator from Data Developments. For cloud version I will go for QBO.
Where did you get the idea that QuickBooks does not have audit trail? It has audit trail and you can easily trace a transaction through the audit log.
What Will You Buy?
Thank you very much for your advise. I am also looking forward to meet you.
Paul, thank you very for your advise, which is much appreciated.
Go For ItAnna,
If you don't feel like dealing with the HMRC, then why don't you do everything as you intend and get another Qualified and Experienced person local to you to deal with the HMRC on behalf of your Co at a reasonable fee.
Reading through your query I can feel your loyalty to your old firm, but I think it is about time you fly the nest permanently.
Go for it and all the best with your decision.
Deloitte caught in Standard Chartered scandal
Both Deloitte and SCB have rejected the allegations, so innocent until proven, what happens after the NY authorities are found to have exaggerated the issues? How can SCB and Deloitte regain their reputation? Why are the regulators in London silence on this issue? Are they always to be led by the americans?
It couldn't have happened to a nicer person. Congratulation Rebecca,
Why accountants should be a-Twitter
This is quite interesting, as I have just finished reading a blog by an Americam CPA and Forensic Accountant advocating that Accountants and other professionals should quit twitter. Although many comments did not agree with her there were some who supported her, it therefore encouraging to see another side by Elaine. This should that we must do our homework before stepping into the world of social media. The blog link is below.
Bribery Act 2010
Hospitality functions are adequately covered in the guidance and unless any firm wants to play smart with this and offer bribe then they will have themselves to blame.
Mutinational firms with the US links are already subjected to the FCPA, so the large organisations must already be used to this, granted the 2010 is now tougher than the FCPA.
All that we can do as Accountants is to update ourselves on the requirements and offer help to your clients especially if we offer Internal Audit, Anti Fraud, Forensic Accounting and Compliance services.
The Act is here to stay and we must update ourselves or others will take your clients.
Bribbery - FIFA
Caan you prove that Seb Blatter took any bribe. Our reaction is sending a wrong message to the rest world. We are behaving as if we don't have bribery and corruption here. Johnson & Johnson and Balfour Beatty comes to mind. Every form of bribery is wrong.
FIFA has made the decision and so we should all support these Countries to do well, I remember when South Afica was awarded the opportunity to host the World Cup, if we had gone by what the British press were saying, the event would have been a flop but they organised an excellent event to the shame of those doomsayers. We are at it again, have we asked ourselves why England got only 2 votes despite all the supposed promises and please don't blame the journalists.
