Accounting Show

I just finished two days of continuing education at the Midwest Accounting & Finance Showcase, which is hosted by the Illinois CPA Society.  I learned the latest accounting and auditing standards, listened to an update of what is happening in the not-for-profit world, and previewed some of the newest developments in technology.  The most interesting part to me was the push for bookkeeping outside of QuickBooks, in favor of running on the ‘cloud’.  Even Intuit, owner of QuickBooks, was promoting their newly improved online product.  I like what I see, but I don’t yet recommend these products for most of our clients.  The cost is still prohibitive.  Let me know if you have any questions.  – Tim
