Balance Consulting Welcomes Collaboration with Accounts Payable Now & Tomorrow

Balance Consulting LLC and Accounts Payable Now and Tomorrow announced a strategic partnership for 2009. This collaboration will bring together the highly respected expertise of both organizations as they join forces to produce the 16th Annual Tax Information Reporting & AP Leadership Conference as well as other much-needed educational services. Given the expertise of both organizations, they complement each other's offerings.

Balance Consulting LLC, the nationally recognized leader in tax compliance education and consulting, has been helping its clients to better understand Form 1099 reporting requirements since 1989. Because its clients demanded it, the firm has expanded to cover Sales and Use Tax issues as well as Accounts Payable issues.

Accounts Payable Now & Tomorrow is the leading source of accounts payable information for the business and finance community. It offers a host of products and services designed to advance your department, your company, and your career.

The Tax Information Reporting & Accounts Payable Leadership Conference has been held, by Balance, annually for well over a decade. This nationally recognized conference brings together experts in the field to provide current information on regulatory requirements, best practices and practical ways to ensure tax compliance. This year it will convene in Atlanta from July 12 through the 15th.

Accounts Payable Now & Tomorrow brings a depth of practical expertise. "We believe that joining with Accounts Payable Now and Tomorrow will enhance the Accounts Payable Leadership track of our conference. In addition it will enhance our knowledge base and allow us to offer our clients a wider range of educational seminars in the accounts payable area; something they have been asking for," said Renee Gaudet, Chief Operations Officer at Balance.

"Given the increased regulatory scrutiny over information reporting I believe it is critical that organizations everywhere get their tax compliance house in order," says Mary Schaeffer, Accounts Payable Now & Tomorrow's publisher and editorial director. She adds, "Given the growing oversight, Accounts Payable Now & Tomorrow is thrilled to be working with an organization of Balance's caliber and expertise."
