“Nexus! It’s a term you may or may not be familiar with. And, no, I’m not talking about that tablet sized mobile device that goes by the same name. I’m talking about the tax law concept of ‘state tax nexus‘ – one that if ignored, can literally cause a company to shut down and its owners to possibly even face jail time!”
——-– Sylvia Dion CPA MBA / What Is The Sales Tax Nexus?

A new accounting technology report, What SMBs Want (from Their CPA), was compiled by The Sleeter Group in its ongoing endeavor to provide guidance in technology leadership for financial practices and SMBs in general.
“Small business owners are challenged with continually changing competition and are seeking ways to get ahead and stay ahead, and they expect their accounting professional to help them meet rise to the challenge.” – What SMBs Want (free download)
Sleeter Group isolated the key trends occurring in what SMBs seek from their outsource accounting professionals. Often, there’s a chasm between what businesses seek from their accountant and what they believe their CPA actually provides, particularly in the area of business and accounting technology advice.
The questions for Sleeter’s new accounting technology report research were focused on grasping how professional practices presently work with their clients versus how SMBs wish to work with their accountant. It covers the varieties of services provided by accounting firms and the types of services SMBs actually desire.
