Blog Post

This has been National Adoption Week for pets, and by now, thousands of dogs and cats might have new homes in the hearts of many thousands of people. But as the holidays approach, scammers know that families are hearing about their kids’ NEED for a dog or cat. And scammers are ready to take advantage by offering up that perfect pet — for a fee.

October 27, 2021

Blog Post

There’s a fake IRS email that keeps popping into people’s inboxes. It says that you can get a third Economic Impact Payment (EIP) if you click a link that lets you “access the form for your additional information” and “get help” with the application.

Blog Post

People are living longer than ever before.

This article originally featured at https://www.freeagent.com/blog/how-the-accounting-industry-has-changed/

The rollout of Making Tax Digital for Income Tax Self Assessment (MTD for ITSA) in 2024 will mark a significant shift for the UK tax system, but the accounting industry has been evolving steadily for decades. More recently, technological developments and the Covid-19 pandemic have changed the role of accountants and bookkeepers in a number of ways. Here are a few examples.

1. Moving to the cloud

Technology is a major driver for change in the accounting industry, and the advent of cloud accounting software is one of the most significant developments the sector has seen in recent years. 

Cloud-based software like FreeAgent has transformed the way that day-to-day bookkeeping is handled, allowing accountants, bookkeepers and their clients to automate many admin tasks and reduce the risk of human error.

2. Working in real time

Cloud accounting and innovations such as Open Banking provide accountants and bookkeepers with a clearer understanding of their clients’ finances than ever before. 

While traditional accounting methods only allow practitioners to review historical financial data, these digital advancements make it possible to monitor business information in real time. This enables accountants and bookkeepers to work proactively, pinpointing opportunities and highlighting potential issues as and when they emerge. 

This level of visibility can also improve financial forecasting. If practitioners and their clients analyse the data, they can collaborate on a strategy that will ensure the ongoing success of the business.

3. Improving client communication and relationships

Good communication is a crucial component for any successful relationship, including that between an accountant and their client. Technological advances and the Covid-19 pandemic have both had a significant impact on how accountants and their clients communicate.

While in-person meetings and phone calls were once essential, social media platforms and video conferencing software are now just as important to positive and productive relationships. 

These convenient tools allow accountants and bookkeepers to have one-to-one meetings, share documents and information and even host webinars to resolve queries quickly and easily.

4. Diversifying the role of accountants and bookkeepers

With day-to-day tasks such as payroll and data entry being dealt with digitally, accountants and bookkeepers can spend more time on advisory services that add value for their clients.

Rather than crunching numbers and correcting human errors, practitioners can use their expertise to advise and support clients with forward planning, money-saving opportunities and growth strategy work. This development is blurring the lines between accountants and business development advisors.

While some business owners have been keeping their accounts digitally for years, everyone affected by MTD for ITSA will have to use compatible software from April 2024. As a result, guiding clients through the transition and educating them on using cloud accounting software is likely to become an even bigger part of the accountant’s role in the near future.

5. Scope to specialise

The Covid-19 pandemic has been a catalyst for change in almost every industry, and the accounting sector is no exception. Remote working has been normalised, with geography becoming less of a barrier when it comes to securing new clients.

Rather than searching for accountants and bookkeepers based on location, business owners can look for practices that best meet their needs, even if they happen to be further afield.

Having fewer geographical restrictions may also allow practitioners to specialise in a particular field. For example, an accountant may offer dedicated strategic growth services in order to target startup businesses.

Keen to discover what’s in store for the accounting industry in 2022? Register for our upcoming webinar to learn more.

ALFRED RUSSEL WALLACE (1823-1913) : British naturalist, humanist, geographer, social critic… and anti-vaccination activist(!)

Alfred Russel Wallace was one of the founders of evolutionary biology. In 1858 he and Charles Darwin jointly proposed a theory for the process of evolution by natural selection before a meeting of eminent scientists at the Linnean Society of London.  It was the catalyst that Darwin needed to finish writing The Origin of Species published in 1859.

Wallace, by profession a natural history collector, developed his ideas about natural selection after spending many years in the rainforests of the Amazon (1848-1852) and the Malay Archipelago (Malaysia and Indonesia) (1854-1862).  Wallace wrote books and many papers about his travels and collections and was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society for his contributions to science. But, after returning to England in 1862, Wallace changed and eventually he gave up natural history to campaign for social justice. One of the causes Wallace took up was anti-vaccination, the movement that opposed the compulsory vaccination laws whereby all children had to be vaccinated against smallpox.  Wallace argued against compulsory vaccination and two of his publications on the subject are held in the library (Wallace 1889, 1898). His theory was later dismissed on the grounds that he had mis-interpreted the statistical data.

Wallace’s transformation from a highly respected naturalist to a social campaigner was an unusual path. His contributions as an activist were modest but dominated his later years with the result that Wallace’s important contribution in 1858 to the development of evolutionary biology has tended to be overlooked.

Copies of Wallace’s books on anti-vaccination were acquired with the Reece Collection of books and pamphlets on smallpox and vaccination of  Dr. Richard James Reece (1862-1924), a medical inspector with the Local Government Board. Part of the collection was sold to LSHTM in 1925. In 1930 Dr Hugh Macewan donated the remainder.  The collection consists of 381 books, 30 volumes of pamphlets, 53 volumes of press cuttings (1881-1902) and eight boxes of pamphlets.  

The LSHTM Rare Books blog series is an occasional posting highlighting books that are landmarks in the understanding of tropical medicine and public health.  The Rare Books Collection was initiated by Cyril Cuthbert Barnard (1894-1959), the first Librarian, from donations and purchases, assisted with grants from the Carnegie United Kingdom Trust. There are approximately 1600 historically important rare and antiquarian books in the Rare Books Collection.

Many of the LSHTM Library’s rare books were digitised as part of the UK Medical Heritage Library. This provides high-quality, copyright-free downloads of over 200,000 books and pamphlets from the 19th and early 20th century. To help preserve the rare books, please consult the digital copy in the first instance.

If the book has not been digitised or if you need to consult the physical object, please request access on the Library’s Discover search service.

You can also email library@lshtm.ac.uk with details of the item you wish to view. A librarian will get in touch to arrange a time for you to view the item.

restaurants open late today near me [FRC Blog] A Potpourri of 2022 Season Information

In Case You Missed It

Please be sure frc blog read this recent Inspire blog by Chris Rake, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Losing weight during 1st trimester for FIRST. It includes frc blog COVID-19 Update, along with links to updated payment terms and a 2022 FIRST ® Robotics Competition Season Payment Terms FAQ. As Chris noted in the blog, we are making these modifications to provide greater flexibility to teams in handling unexpected changes this season.

Kickoff Kit Shipping

Good News! Typically, teams who request their Kickoff Kits be shipped directly to them (instead of picking them up at a local Kickoff) are responsible for the shipping cost. For 2022 though, our very good friends at FedEx are once donating this so called “mysite” shipping. We still strongly encourage teams to pick up their Kickoff Kits in-person if they are able to and comfortable with that. It is the only way you can get your kit on Kickoff day, and if in-person gatherings are being allowed in your part of the world, you get to experience the fun of Kickoff with other teams. We cannot predict exactly what day you will get your Kickoff Kit if you opt to have it shipped directly to frc blog as there is no guaranteed delivery date, but it will definitely be after Kickoff!

We’re so grateful to FedEx for this generous help and everything else they do for our teams!!

Please note, panic at the disco tour 2020 donation is for shipping costs only. The receiving team is still responsible for any duties/taxes/fees that may apply.

Taxes

In a recent blog, we noted that FIRST is going to begin collecting sales tax for teams in affected areas. While FIRST will cover taxes for teams for the 2022 season, it’s still especially important for you to obtain and upload any Sales Tax-Exempt forms that apply to you before you pay your registration fee. This will help keep our costs down and set you up for success in 2023 when you will need to start paying any applicable sales tax yourself.

Checkout Instructions

As we noted before, FIRST Robotics Competition is going to a cart-and-checkout system for registration payments this year. Take a frc blog at these instructions with screenshots to help guide you along.

The Allaire Medal

Last month, we announced that we were retiring the Allaire Medal, which recognized one student on each FIRST Championship Chairman’s Award team. After feedback from the community, we have reversed the decision and will reinstate it along with its associated scholarship. This medal will be available in 2022.

Hope you are having a great week!
