See You on the Flip Side
Hang on to your hats, loyal readers. When you return from your Memorial Day holiday weekend, you will find a NEW AccountingWEB waiting for you. We've been planning and creating a new site for you for months, and the fruits of our labors are about to be revealed. Not only do we have a new design, we have a new mission.
We've listened to what our readers have told us they want to see on AccountingWEB, and the result is about to be revealed. Our goal is to be your one-stop DIY for the accounting profession. We rely on our readers to share their experiences, tips, and advice as we analyze the news and bring you the information you need to improve your own business and your relationship with your clients and customers, and to give you the tools to help improve their businesses as well.
I expect there will be some changes and improvements to make once we flip the switch on the new site, and there might be a few links that don't work, a few pieces in the wrong places, still room for improvement. We'll be here, behind the scenes, testing everything and making sure we've got it all right. Let us know if you see anything that doesn't work and we'll get it fixed. See you next week on the new AccountingWEB!!!
