- BeancounterBlog discusses the recent dÃ©tente between movie stars and the IRS. Seems the IRS feels all those really expensive gifts that celebrities get should be taxable, and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association agrees. Celebs will now be “issued appropriate informational tax forms by the HFPA and will be responsible for satisfying their income tax obligations.”
- Big Four Blog notes that Ban Ki Moon, the new Secretary-General of the UN, has announced he’ll make public his financial disclosure report and it will be audited by PricewaterhouseCoopers. That he’ll make the report public is commendable on its own, but to have it audited as well is truly precedent setting.
- Dan Meyer of Tick Marks is blogging about Fortune’s “100 Best Companies to Work For”, which names all four of the Big Four accounting firms, with Ernst & Young besting the other three at 25th place. One regional firm to the Detroit area also made the cut. Say what you will about the Big Four, but at least they understand they’re in a seller’s market – and they’re buyin’ what me and my peers are sellin’.

If the little gifty-things I get are taxable (being sort of ‘cashy’), and I get deduction on them, the celebs better be paying tax too! Good to hear.
E&Y’s been on top of the heap for a while; interesting to see all four crashing the party, though. Raised my eyebrows for some reason, though. :)
For a good chuckle, pick up that magazine (like, in Chapters, the ‘free’ way ), and compare turnover stats.
What would I find if I compared turnover stats? That’s E&Y’s are head and shoulders above the rest?
Nah, that all the big 4’s turnover figures are way higher than the great majority of the other Fortune 100 “best to work” firms. :)
Oh, yeah that makes more sense. It’s just the nature of the business really.
