Chart of Accounts and MYOB 'Clean-Ups'

Hi all

I finished my Cert IV Bookkeeping and Accounting last year and have started my own bookkeeping business from home. I have just signed on my first client who has asked me to do a 'clean-up ' of their MYOB and to provide 5 or so hours each month for reconciliation of accounts and general caretaking to ensure they are entering things correctly.

I have been given Administrative Access to their MYOB accountright Live account and have been going through their company file and their Chart of Accounts is a bit 'mish-mash' and all over the place. They have items I would consider Cost of Sale items in the general Expense Account and some very random accounts throughout. My question for everyone is, do I seek authority from the client to discuss this with the accountant and in what form - an email sent to the accountant and cc me in or a written letter signed by the client? And can I ask the accountant to provide me with some advice regarding changes to make or should these changes all be done by the accountant?

All advice is greatly appreciated!!

Optimization of business processes is carried out nonstop and usually covers a narrow area at the level of functions. It is characterized by more moderate risks and requires much less time to conduct. I am thinking about the automation of processes, what can you advise? How is it best to implement new software, and how to teach the employees? Will I have to fire some of them?...
