THIS MONTH’S ISSUE of the Accountancy Age App is packed full of interviews, features and analysis.
Top of the features list is a deeper review of audit reform in China. Gavin Hinks looks at why the reform has led to a cut in fees, but no contracts have moved.
Continuing with audit we’ve got a write up of the Audit Fees Survey of 2013; which looks at how the auditor-client relationship has undergone great change and its reflection on fees.
Smith & Williamson’s co-chief executives outline the firm’s growth strategy and how it appears to work seamless when essentially it runs as two different businesses.
Jeffreys Henry’s managing partner Justin Randall talks about his firm’s strategy in the tech and digital sector and its base in Tech City.
McDonald’s UK CFO Paul Pomroy tells us about the one of the largest franchisees in the world; while Go-Ahead’s group FD Keith Down draws on his experience at Tesco and JD Wetherspoons to strengthen our public transport.
There’s also opinion on the anti-tax avoidance rule being unjustified, by law firm Harwood Hutton’s Cormac Marum; and insolvency trade body R3 president Liz Bingham warns that if insolvency licensing works, why mess with it?
Plus there’s the usual analysis; this month includes a look at IASB’s overhaul of processes; firm’s united in LLP taxation concerns; the ramifications of an insolvency Appeal Court hearing; as well as the government insolvency statistics of the first quarter.
