Busy Season is No Joke

Feeling a little punny? We've got you covered with a whole host of news, thoughts, and a brief look at 50 somewhat humorous accounting puns! In this episode, we're talking about the confessions of on ex-partner, who shares why implementing technology is so scary to partners. We'll also look at what KPMG is doing to entice new recruits, and tackle the touchy subject of no-life-balance during tax season, and how to deal with the Great Resignation. We've got updates on the Kronos ransomware attack, Theranos, and how its auditing firms failed to audit, and why California is nearing two decades of feet dragging at a cost of a cool billion dollars. All this, and much more, right now!
