• Bookkeeping Accounting Support Teacher?

    I am a bookkeeper. My company does have an accountant but he only does the taxes at years end. Sometimes I wish I had someone who I could ask an accounting question. QuickBooks used to have a network of local experts that you could ask for help for what seemed like a reasonable amount of money (I'm not talking about tech support) But that seems to be no more. I would like to have a relationship with a smart talented patient accountant who is skilled in QuickBooks that I could pay on a subscription basis to ask an occasional question. What do you think my best options are? Thanks

  • USPS wanted to charge me a extra $10 for putting Fragile stickers on my boxes?!?

    I sell stuff on Ebay for a living and I had a couple fragile items that I had to ship out, it is rare that I have fragile items but sure enough, this time I did.

    I sell stuff on Ebay for a living and I had a couple fragile items that I had to ship out, it is rare that I have fragile items but sure enough, this time I did. I had a reel of Fragile stickers that I previously ordered off of the USPS website (free) a long time ago. I put these stickers on the box as opposed to writing it on the box, when I went to the PO to drop them off, the clerk said "Um, yeah, it costs an extra 10$ per box to have fragile stickers on your box, you will need to remove them if you want us to accept the package". ...Excuse me? Uh, NO, absolutely not. That is unfathomably ridiculous. My response to her was "I am not paying a extra $10 to cover your loaders incompetence. If you need to charge people to ensure their packages are treated with respect, then you have already failed as a reliable service. Besides, I know for a fact that packages with Fragile stickers or writing go through the same exact process as those who don't, and are stacked and thrown the same as well. I just put it on their on the off chance someone actually cares about their job, I will just take my chances since I have insurance on it anyway, if it breaks, it is on you guys". Was I too harsh? What are your opinions on the 'fragile' system.

  • My boss's son got promoted 3 times in 2 years, is nepotism legal in a public company? What can i do?

    I am 27yo and work as a Research Executive in this big restaurant chain in our country. Recently the CEO's son who is a Vice President who does no work every day but listen to music, eat lunch with the office ladies and watch youtube videos in his corner Office, told me he likes the title of Chief Research Officer and then asked his dad to promote him, his dad agreed without hesitation and made him the Chief Research Officer. The most absurd thing is that my boss' son was only a General manager 2 years ago, and became Director, then VP, then Chief Research Officer, in just 2 years?! Now I know this company belongs to his family and he can play as much as he wants. But I find this unethical, unprofessional, and downright unfair. This is a public company, and there are many shareholders beside his father, (though his family controls more than 60 percent), can't anyone do something about this? I hate him so much, that loser is in the corner office doing nothing while I'm still stuck in my cubicle?! What should i do?

    Best answer: you figure an hourly rate for your time, charge in increments of 15 minutes. like lawyers. since you are working as a freelancer, you will have to pay your income and payroll taxes as well as for any office supplies and equipment. So your fee should include at least 25% more, for overhead/operating expenses. If an employee doing what you will be doing earns, say $20 an hour, then your fee would be $25 an hour. You will need some way to track your time to support your billings. If the company routinely hires contractors, they probably have a billing/payment process in place that you will need to follow.
