Fine Point Consulting Newsletter - January 2021
New Year, Updated Reporting Requirements
Often going into the New Year, we hear either “New year, New me!”, or about how everyone is setting resolutions of healthier lifestyles or improvements they want to make for the coming year. While some participate, others roll their eyes. This year, I think a common theme was the excitement that 2020 was finally over and being filled with hope for the coming year when we can get back to a happy and healthy normal that includes handshakes, hugs, and in-person interactions.
Generally, the New Year for accountants means BUSY! Whether it is closing the books for the prior year, finalizing budgets for the coming year, or juggling all the reporting and tax deadlines and keeping up with the changing reporting (looking at you 1099-NEC) ... we are busy doing it all. As one of our staff members called it, the ”January Scaries”!
If you have been following Fine Point, then one thing you might know is that our culture and our people are incredibly important parts of who we are. With COVID-19, we have had to find ways to keep our group tight-knit while working remotely - even more so as our team (still working remotely) continues to grow. For January, since we know we require a lot from our team, one thing we did was surprise everyone with a Bright Box that included a little note along with some yummy snacks. I stumbled upon these fun gifts in a newsletter from one of my mentors and they are honestly the best little surprise you can get in the mail! It was a nice little treat to let every know how much they are appreciated and boost morale during these busy times!
