I was visiting my folks the other day, and popped in to see my dad on the computer. He is not that computer literate, although as a Chartered Accountant he has used many computer programs over the years. His sight isn’t that great anymore, and in fact he is blind in one eye. I absolutely hate watching him on the computer, because he has his screen setting to 800 x 600, and his appearance settings to extra large font. Grrr! You can only see half the world Dad. Even though he has to scroll right to see the rest of [More]

Sometime inbetween then and now, I have been in the process of converting my own websites into a blog, and moving all of the content and information from my “blogspot.com” domains to my own domains. Included in this bunch of blogs was one I created called “HART’s Picks”. HART’s Picks .. is [More]

Some accounting packages and software are integrated with different modules, such as accounts payable and accounts receivable. In most cases, you should be able to record most of your cheque (accounts payable and bank cheque) transactions as well as your sales (accounts receivable and deposit) transactions. In any monthly accounting process, besides these screen oriented and often visual modules, you will have to make adjusting journal entries on occasion. When I prepare year end financial statements for my clients, I usually receive the information in two different ways: in a shoebox – where I get all of the information and [More]
I print my own business cards. Years ago, I had created my own business card on Microsoft Publisher. I have been involved in many conversations, maybe even borderline arguments! regarding whether or not I should be just ordering professionally printed business cards, or continue to print them myself. I now print them on Avery InkJet #38873 “Clean Edge Linen Textured Business Cards” (white stock). On the Avery website, you can even download pre-designed templates and create from the MS Word software. Anyway, I think I’m saving money because I’m only printing 30-50 cards at a time when I need new [More]

Some services using VoIP may only allow you to call other people using the same service, but others may allow you to call anyone who has a telephone number – including local, long distance, mobile, and international numbers. Also, while some services only work over your computer or a special VoIP [More]

As discussed in a previous blog entry, I really do have a completely insane and overly organized chart of accounts for myself and my wife. I keep track of everything. I obtain receipts for everything. It is a hellish nightmare getting current and I usually file our income tax returns on the evening that they are due! Every year I make it a point to include everything, and once I have everything documented .. I have a complete set of financial statements. These statements include: All of our major assets, at cost, including our home and stuff in it All [More]

I thought I would open up a category here in my sidebar, for Meme’s ….. What is a Meme you ask? There are many sites around the internet that have many topics and many interesting ways to create traffic to one’s website. The concept, I think, is that someone, somewhere, somehow .. decides to create a “Meme Blog” and ask questions on a consistent basis of time. This could be daily, weekly, or any other period of time. Bloggers come and read the questions, then go back to their own blog, answer them .. and then return to the “Meme [More]

LESSEEE…. DEBIT CREDIT (1) WORKING HARD? XX,XXX     or HARDLY WORKING?   XX,XXX I have been quite busy this summer.

I have been using Typing Reports for everything and for years. It’s my way of finalizing a job. For all of my personal income tax files, each file will have a T1 Transit Memo at the top of the file, above the actual printed and final tax return, and my envelope of tax receipts (due to E-File). It’s the same way with my annual T4, T4A, or T5 Preparation too. I have a different control sheet, which I named it as my T4/T4A/T5 Transit Memo. It’s no different for publishing financial statements. I call this my Typing Report .. plain [More]
