The book is written in Swedish and it’s title will be Fastigheter – En praktisk vägledning om redovisning och beskattning (Real Estates – A Practical Guidance on Accounting and Taxation). The book is preliminary scheduled to be released on Thursday August 25, 2016. See also my earlier post Manuscript Drop – Real Estates.

The news is that assignments on current account can no longer be accounted for when billed, they have to be accounted for by the percentage of completion method.

Celebrating 40 Years in Business

Peter Berg

Yours truly for 40 years

This day, June 14, but back in 1976 I began my first job in accounting. So today it has been 40 years in business as an accounting consultant, collecting memories and experiences of a wide range.

The latest memories are from a two week business trip to Sweden, with a lot of interesting meetings with people from different organisations. I’ll be back in the nearest future with updates from the trip. Until then, I wish you a good work or a pleasant vacation, please pick what suits you the best 🙂
