Text too small?

In www.netprophet.co.nz news this week we look at why the decision by Yellow Pages Group (YPG) to have PricewaterhouseCoopers providing auditing and non-auditing services is raising eyebrows.

We also reveal that May 20 is the date set for the government budget with Finance Minister Bill English saying tax reforms will definitely be included.

The NZICA says government needs to put an integrated tax solution ahead of the needs of particular groups and believes it should consider reducing business tax compliance costs as part of the overall reform of tax law.

Inland Revenue wins a place in the finals of the Vero Excellence in Business Support Awards for its tax seminars run for small businesses and Craig Myles comments on the way in which financial advisers disclose how they are remunerated and by whom.

Finally, Practice Management looks at never-ending to do lists with Debbie Mayo Smith explaining how to automate follow-ups.

How to automate follow-ups

We all have a 'To Do' list. Most maintain it mentally. Some write down a list, or have 17 half crossed out lists scattered. You might use your software calendar to prompt you. Wrong place. The calendar is built for appointments and meetings only. Reminders make you look unnaturally busy. >> Read more
