CPA Evolution Is Missing The Weeds

News, and opinions abound in this week's episode! We've got more news from the world of the IRS about how four senators are either for, or against (we're not quite sure) a 'place-holder service' called enQ, and why the IRS reform could raise more revenue than expected. We've also got the latest on SPAC shenanigans, and the new wave of restatements to account for "accounting errors." In more positive news, we're getting into the weeds about the CPA Evolution Model Curriculum revision, and what it means for accounting education; what it got right, and what it totally left out. In app news, we'll look over the earnings from Intuit, and Sage, and what these companies are doing to step up their games. We've got raises, small, and large, from the likes of Outmin, Pixie, Formstack, and Practice Ignition, and we've got a whole host of updates from the QBO camp. In other news, we've got a story about deep-fake voice cloning, $35 million missing, and why everyone should employ a variety of verification factors that can prevent this kind of crime from becoming second nature. Grab a beverage of your choosing, and join us!
