Coming up the first week in November is the annual Sleeter Conference for which Scott will be a speaker. Please check out his all-day pre-conference session on E-Commerce for accountants at Caeser’s Palace in Las Vegas on Sunday, November 3rd.
Here’s a session description of the Ecommerce Solutions Workshop from SleeterConference.com:
Enhance your services and increase your value to clients by providing the guidance they need to select the best ecommerce solution for their business, integrated with the accounting services necessary to manage their finances for a 24/7 online business. This session will provide a framework to make the right technology selections, define the accountant’s role and tasks, and provide practical best practices so you and your customer will be successful. This ecommerce session will start with an overview of the ecommerce market, a comparison of the current key players, and deployment options and best practices.
As CPAs and accountants, you should be involved in the review and selection of the Payment Services for your clients’ businesses, both to look out that they aren’t paying too much for each transaction as well as to implement a service that is manageable by the accountant (you). Then we will provide an overview of the sales tax requirements for an ecommerce business, as well as the potential changes coming with an internet sales tax. We will wrap up with a review of the accounting workflow and best practices to support an ecommerce business, and a comparison of the accounting solutions and integrations to the ecommerce platforms. This session will provide practical information, best practices, and checklists, to expand your practice and enable your customers to successfully grow their online business.
