WHAT THEY ARE SAYING
There’s no business like show business, but there are several businesses like accounting.
Proper accounting is like engineering. You need a margin of safety. Thank God we don’t design bridges and airplanes the way we do accounting.
In the corporate world, sometimes things aren’t exactly black and white when it comes to accounting procedures.”
