February Accountancy Age App 2014

THIS MONTH'S issue of the Accountancy Age App is packed full of interviews, features and analysis.

The Financial Power List ranks the most influential peopel and organisations across the profession, which are expected to affect the industry in the next 12 months.

Neil Bennett, managing partner at insolvency firm Leonard Curtis, explains how the firm's unique structure has helped it to weather the downturn. He also explains how the firm is now moving to a period of growth by adapting to the changing requirements of the market.

Price Bailey's chairman Peter Gillman talks about the future of the firm and remembers how he used the discovery of fraud in management to further his career.

Xchanging CFO David Bauernfeind talks about the major organisational transformation taking place at the outsourcing and technology business, as well as the pressures and growing demands of working in a listed company.

We've included Financial Direcotor's annual salary survey of FTSE 350 finance directors' remuneration packages including highlights of the oldest, youngest, and highest paid among them.

There's also opinion on the difference between law and accountancy firms and how practices can learn from some of the issues facing legal LLPs from CBW insolvency partner John Alexander. As well as Maite Baron, who offers advice on how to avoid burnout in the year ahead.

Plus there's the usual analysis; this month we include a look at the accounting arguments behind the Autonomy and HP write-down issue; what the finance bill means for practices; the tax issues currently being consulted on for LLPs; and a break-down of the latest Baker Tilly results.
