The Financial Reporting committee and the Taxes committee of CAUBO have been reviewing and updating two important CAUBO Guides:
In the course of this work, we came across a product developed by CICA and Ernst & Young, which members of both committees found very helpful not only as a location to easily access the CAUBO guides, but also as a single source of integrated information. Ultimately, both committees recommended to the CAUBO Board that the CAUBO guides be located on the KNOTIA website and that all CAUBO members be encouraged to subscribe at no charge.
