Editor's Note
AccountingWEB welcomes contributions of guest articles. Some of our guest writers make regular appearances on the site, while others have submitted only one or two articles. The key is that the guest writers bring elements of their own areas of expertise to share with our readers, and everyone has a different take on the world of accounting. The selection of articles chosen for this newsletter includes the voices of six different writers who all have something important to share.

Best regards,
Gail Perry, CPA
