A while ago I was approached by Sageworks about working with them on some content writing. They were looking for someone to write more technical pieces about audit, advisory services, and business valuation. Having used their ProfitCents product years ago when I worked for Muckel Anderson CPAs in Reno, I was really honored to work with them.
Our first collaboration is a look at SSARS 21, Section 70 and it was just published by Accountex. For this piece, I had a chance to interview Samantha Mansfield of CPA.com and Michael Glynn from the AICPA. It was a real honor to talk to both of them.
As anyone who’s tried to interpret new accounting standards can tell you, the language is pretty dry and sterile. So it was fun to hear from Samantha and Mike, get their thoughts on the new standard, and really just feel their excitement and passion for this subject.
Yes, people can and do get passionate about accounting standards!
