What Accountants Should Prepare In 2018

Changes are coming to the accounting profession and for some these can be a bit overwhelming. This is why a list has been provided for accountants to make sure their calendar is filled with important tasks, such as purchasing an insurance accountant, they should accomplish for the entire year.

For January, this should be composed of technologies and trends that are gaining attention but you have no knowledge about – it could be bitcoin, new business or complex tax. Make sure to devote time on each of the topics to know more about them until you have crossed out everything.

February is the month to dedicate in learning about the biggest technologies of 2018 – Artificial Intelligence and blockchain. This is important to know the impact on your firm as well as your clients. You should be able to explain things to your colleagues and clients once the month has ended.

March is for checking that the antivirus you have installed in your system is still up-to-date. If you have none, time to get one.

April is quite busy because of tax deadline so make sure you have a fixed schedule so you can go home by five together with your staff.

May is for taking note of the work you do for your clients but does not charge anything. This should be included in the invoice even if it has no fee so the clients know you are doing them.

June is finding out alternative processes that could have been applied to completed projects to make it easier and more efficient.

July is for giving your staff the day off every Friday and you as well by closing the entire office.

August should be invested in getting to know your clients and assess them.

September is for motivating a young person by sharing your love of accounting.

October should be dedicated in making something new in your office by paint or renovations.

November is encouraging your clients to refer you to other people by sending them an email about things you love in your role as an accountant.

For the last month, December, interview your best staff so you know how to retain them longer.

While these things are needed, an insurance accountant is just as important to make sure your firm is protected.

For the clients moving from one residential zone to another, this helps to make space for new entrants to the family like children.

Advantages Of Booking Early In Myanmar Hotels

Advantages Of Booking Early In Myanmar Hotels 

If you are a globe trotter, you surely appreciate the importance of booking early in Myanmar hotels or in the hotel of your country of destination. There are several advantages of booking early especially if you are travelling during Myanmar’s peak season. Some of these advantages include the following:

Lower room rate

Hotels provide special privileges to potential guests who approach them or send them an email about getting a room at discounted rate. Hotels generally set aside rooms that they can offer at discount price among customers who would request for it. Doing a last minute booking gives you a slim chance of getting an available room with discount. In order to get a sure booking reservation at a pocket-friendly price, place your reservation at least a month prior to your arrival. The room rates can go up but you can be sure that your room rate is already locked and it will not be affected with any room rate changes.

Guaranteed room at arrival

If you place your reservations in one of Myanmar hotels, you can relax during your travel since you are sure that you have a room waiting for you when you arrive in the country. Last minute booking or worse, booking on the spot is not only more expensive, you also run the risk of not having a comfortable room to stay in when you get to Yangon especially if you are travelling during holidays or high season. You can book your room reservations from a third party booking site or you can also book directly at the hotel’s website for promos and lower rates.

Cancellations and more options

Some of the best things about booking ahead in Myanmar hotels is you can cancel the room reservation if ever there are last minute changes or emergencies prior to your trip. If you cancel in advance, there is a better chance that you will not be credited even if you cancel. Also, when you do on the spot booking, you no longer have a choice but get the room even if it is beyond your budget or even if it is lower than your standards only because you are left with no other choice.
