Our client was a company running a restaurant chain. When we started their service, the accounting was kept very simply – all revenues and costs were recorded without division into the restaurant. It was enough for tax settlements, and the owner, Karol, knew his business in detail, and he did not need additional accounting information.
It was Wednesday afternoon. Once again I met Mr. Marek, whom I got to know through a mutual friend. Mr. Marek ran a company that sold products for farmers. He faced a very serious challenge – the chief accountant who had been keeping the company’s accounting from the very beginning retired, and there was no one in the company to replace her. Actually he couldn’t do it yet – one of the accountants was Marta, a very talented and promising person, who at that time had too little preparation to take over this role.
