It Is A Part Off Your History, Idiot.



Andrew Little in a speech, gave a backhander to a company that points our way to a prosperous future, Xero a front runner in developing software that will remove the drudgery of notating figures for the book keepers.
Little in one of his moments of lucidity claimed Xero "will put accountants out of work", that's it, the science is settled, he is a  muppet and   incorrigibly thick.
The soft ware will more accurately and efficiently write, calculate, and deliver the lawful results that the Accountant will then use to plan for the client what they have done, done wrong, could possibly do better, and ensure they stay within the law and pay their dues.

One of the leading figures in the 1935 government, of the party Little temporarily leads, Robert "Fighting Bob" Semple saw  the benefits  progress can deliver to free minions from manual labour servitude when he mounted a Caterpillar Buldozer following his appointment as Minister Of Public Works, and drove over a wheelbarrow and shovel to demonstrate how he would harness technology.

The daft prick has absolutely no comprehension, Xero is the future and Little Angry just ignored one of the lessons of history.

If that's the way you choose to interpret such comments it's little wonder you hold the odd views you do. Not sure if it's ignorance or malice on your part. Do you know the difference between a financial and a management accountant?

The accountants I routinely deal with these days don't make the distinction Howie refers to. The accountants realize that they need to offer more to clients than bean-counting. The two firms I deal with offer estate planning, asset management, GST services, tax agency work, company incorporation, trustee services etc… etc… So I suggest the very definition of "accountant" has evolved. Little Andy with his 19th century trade union influenced bigotry hasn't tried to do so!

Not really cockwolloper. The functions of the accountant you list have been their core business since the 1960s at least. Seems you have some evolving to do yourself.

I shall ignore your ad-hominem slight. The functions such as trustee services, company incorporation etc were not the core business of accountancy practices at all. I incorporated a company in 1971 and my bank manager referred me to a solicitor who subsequently administered a trust for me, including the declarations as to gift duty, replacement of trustees from time to time. It is only since the 1990s that accountants in my city have taken on the roles I listed earlier.

Oh sorry, Cockwolloper, only for the last 25 years then. As you were. As for ad hominem abuse:

"Little Andy with his 19th century trade union influenced bigotry"

It's ok when right wing wankers do it though eh, cocky?
