Common Bookkeeping Errors
Seamus Parfrey

By Seamus Parfrey





Business owners unfortunately make many mistakes in looking after their books and records. The following is our advice to overcome the most common errors we find.


1.         DO IT NOW


Do your bookkeeping at least weekly so that you have up to date information but more importantly you are not falling behind, letting the problem build up and then trying to attend to it when deadlines loom and chaos reigns.


2.         DON'T KEEP BOOKS


Manual books I mean. At the very least use spreadsheets to record your financial information. This of course can save your accountant time and you money as a result.


3.         BANK ACCOUNT








Good Interview Questions

By Seamus Parfrey


As my little darlings are currently going through the interview process I have done some research on good interview questions which you should find useful when hiring.


If you want to fit the right candidates into your open positions, you need to take charge of the interview process.

Here are the seven character questions you must ask:

US Tax Humour

By Noel Murphy


A white business envelope with your name in the cellophane window and the return address of the IRS. Attention from the Internal Revenue Service can mean only one thing: They want your money. - Jessica Steinberg, The Times of Israel, 5-6-12


Over the years and out of literally thousands of tax protestors who have been criminally prosecuted, a very small handful have won acquittals in their criminal trials, by convincing the jury that they were too stupid to understand that they had to pay taxes. - Financial & Tax Fraud Education Associates, Inc
