paperwork for me, enjoy your evening
Me, too! One week from now, I'll be on my way back to Denver
Guess I won't be visiting Brisbane any time in the future . Canberra in May might be my last trip to Australia for quite a while.
that was in the Brisbane paper, Canberra may be installing similar, let us know how you get on Random checks means profiled to include all single male travellers if it is anything like the departure explosives check they have already at Brisbane Int - 3 checks for 3 departures last year was my score.
Still up paying farm bills and doing books. I really earn my money in the spring and fall.
hello fellow pen pusher I wish the accountant would sign off on last years books so I don't sit here waiting for further calls
My parents used to do that for the farm. Lots of hours behind the computer/books.. I think they're glad we switched to construction.
Hello, there! We are so lucky, huh, Dawg?! Here's hoping he gets those books finished up soon!
And, my headaches are just starting with our year-end on April 30th... likely won't be getting into it heavy until about late June so have some free time yet!
Hmmmmmm, wish I convince someone else that it would be a good idea to switch to construction! The books just have to be easier for anything other than farming...
Where did they farm, Daniel?
Wrong colour, Tim!
We seldom hear from the actual accountant (Head of the company) he occasionally is bought in on unusual things we claim. We have one lady who confirms my work and her supervisor is a more senior lady who checks her final balance sheet and P/L. Both I have dealt with for years.
I did have an interesting conversation with the head accountant about improvements to a property where that property was purchased before capital gains tax was introduced in Australia. He had to get back to me on that one
Our accountant is a shareholder in the company we deal with but he still handles most of our concerns himself. A junior will do the initial work and then he checks it over before calling us in for the final analysis. The year-end is done and then shown to us (with last years comparison) in a conference room using the computer and a large screen. It usually takes a couple of hours to go through everything with us... very thorough.
I get them to forward the finished results then I may approve and get our head chimp to sign (easier than it sounds) a few years I have sent them back for changes where there have been some disputed points. I prepare the full results and only really want them to prepare depreciation schedules as it is too time consuming and tricky. They sometimes find something that I have posted wrongly to justify their fee
Yeah, it can get very complicated with ours sometimes, too -- assets and depreciation on machinery, shareholder liabilities and equity (this gets sticky when we run things through like a new vehicle for me that we are now going to have to take back out of the farm ) plus all the usual things pertaining to revenue and expenses. Sometimes I sit there listening and my eyes just glaze over!!!
It's certainly an interesting industry. We farmed various areas across Colorado until the early 2000s, when somebody asked us if it was possible to do some dirt-work. My Dad had never worked with that type of equipment before, so we gave it a go, and all went well. The company then recommended us to somebody else, and we moved out of the farming industry, into dirt moving. While it's had some ups and downs, it's probably a bit safer than farming, especially with the price of grain, etc.
Here's a picture from a job we did at the TPA airport. My Dad took the pic. If I had been there, we would have waited for somebody other than WN to pass by
Yes, but you have a profile with Interpol, and other agencies worldwide, including NZL customs
