5 Accounting Tools For Freelancers that Make Life Easy

5 Accounting Tools For Freelancers that Make Life Easy | Business for small businesses | Scoop.it

As a freelancer you have to wear many hats. That’s part of the magic of it – you get to experience all facets of running your own career, but that’s also the challenge of it – there’s no one to bail you out if times get tough, and if a task has to be done it’s up to you and no-one else…which brings me to accounting. I don’t know about you, but every time I tried to keep my eyes open during accounting class it was an epic battle to say the least.

No matter how dry the subject may seem, however, accounting is absolutely essential for freelancers, so how can we minimize the pain and maximize the gain? Well, thankfully over the past few years personal accounting software has improved to the point that you don’t need to have a degree in nuclear physics to use it. To save you some frustration I’ve put together a list of 5 of the best accounting tools that streamline the day-to-day process and ensure that you won’t feel out of your depth when tax-time rolls around!

Did I Plagiarize? The Types and Severity of Plagiarism Violations

Did I Plagiarize? The Types and Severity of Plagiarism Violations | Business for small businesses | Scoop.it
Plagiarism is a hot topic in the academic world, but it applies in all aspects of our lives. In a country and culture that values intellectual property, it is imperative that we are conscious of plagiarism guidelines and standards. The reality is, in many facets of life, when we make mistakes, we can claim ignorance. But when it comes to plagiarizing, there is little slack given; we are all expected to understand plagiarism guidelines and what constitutes a violation. While plagiarism is never considered acceptable, there are varying levels of severity with different types of plagiarism violations. So are you wondering…

« Citer ses sources conformément aux normes exigées » et «se conformer aux droits liés à la propriété intellectuelle » sont deux objectifs d’apprentissage du Profil TIC des étudiants au collégial liés respectivement aux habiletés consistant à « 3.0 Présenter l’information » et « 5.0 Exploiter les TIC de manière efficace et responsable » (source :  http://www.reptic.qc.ca/cadres-de-reference/cadre-de-reference-profil-tic-des-etudiants-du-collegial/).

 

Ce document peut donc s’avérer utile pour initier les étudiants, ainsi que les enseignants, aux différents types de plagiat.
