Stay One Step Ahead of the Auditor

When revenue is down, the state's primary means of income without raising taxes is auditing existing businesses.

For the unprepared accountant, the auditor can present an array of challenges and problems. Join us as our seasoned faculty share from their experience on how to work with the auditor while controlling the flow of information and negotiating the best possible outcome for your client.
