    Effective Interim Accounting - Potentials, Costs, Do's and don't s

    Employees are gone, hiring doesn't work out, and on top of that a financing round is pending: Interim accountants are usually sought when there's a fire. And rightly so, but interim accounting can do even more: advance digital projects, improve reporting, build permanent structures. In his masterclass, Magnus Bilke from DONE!Financials shows you the potential of interim accounting for small and large companies, what costs you should expect and how to avoid the most common mistakes.

    How do we get more young people interested in tax and accounting?

    Shopworn, dry, and boring. These are words, which connects a lot of people in jobs like assistant tax, consultant, bookkeeper, or tax adviser. No surprise, that less people decide for a job in this sector. The result: skill shortage, which puts a lot of companies and chancelleries into a formidable challenge. Because of that reason, there is no more time to waste. We have to burnish the Image of the tax industry and we also have to pick up the young people and take them on the way, which has to offer a lot more.

    Are you still "exceling" or are you already making sound strategic decisions?

    “No money, no fun” is something that we all learned as a child. However, many businesses neglect their strategic liquidity planning or fail to execute it effectively. Inflexible and opaque Excel tables often also come into play to exacerbate the situation. This is why most entrepreneurs are unable to evaluate whether their company’s liquidity is sufficient to, for example, open a new location, hire new employees or purchase new machines. How a modern and digital liquidity planning tool can provide you with a real-time overview of your finances and thus enable you to make the right strategic decisions will be demonstrated to you in Stephan Krehl’s masterclass.

    Digitize, visualize, analyze. How to keep a better eye on your business expenses.

    To manage spend across the enterprise, finance teams need visibility and control over individual employee spend as well as corporate spend across departments, vendors and projects. With spend management, payments are optimized and digitized, and reporting is real-time. This enables better decisions to be made for the future.

    Rethinking finances around the employee - from expenses to salary optimization

    An immense part of accounting deals with all expenses around the employee: travel expenses, per diems, cash expenses, meal allowance, company car, etc. In doing so, the employee often has to manage their finances in a multitude of standalone solutions and the accounting department has to merge them accordingly. Circula shows how to implement a digital ecosystem that benefits both accounting and employees.

    Employee Experience & Purchase 2 Pay - Higher Employee Satisfaction through Business Process Automation

    How a company is perceived is quite relevant in the current "war of talents" in order to retain and find employees. A high level of employee satisfaction will contribute to this. End-to-end, interconnected sub-processes in the purchase-to-pay process can be an important tool in this context. The aim of the hands-on presentation is therefore to present precisely this consistency using concrete examples and to reflect on the topic of employee satisfaction. Live topics in the presentation: supplier contract, processing of purchase order and supplier documents, (automatic) digital incoming invoice processing.

In this masterclass, you will learn how to
