Hi Rustler, The piece is meant to be provocative... as those 5 questions ARE the most commonly asked to accountants and probably the reason you hire an accountant in the first place... It is at least the most common reason people hire me.
This is the first of some pieces in which I use the concept of business advisory as the catalyst for driving value to our clients as computers/AI/quickbooks automate some of these things and can deliver numerical answers within seconds... and what will the role of the accountant have?
hope that makes sense, where I am coming from... Thanks your comments by the way, I am agreeing with you actually!
