Why Do I Have a Special Writing Program for
Easy. There are many professional situations in which accountants must communicate well in writing,
- Internal communication: e-mail and other written
messages to peers, superiors and support staff
- Ongoing client interaction: updates, information,
replies to questions, either by e-mail or printed material
- Communication with tax authorities: requiring an
understanding of the different type of language and style used by this audience
- Formal reports: financial and other business reports,
including opinions --- not only a service to the client, but an important record of the work
- Workpaper reviews: used for follow-up by managers and
staff, forming an important part of engagement file
- Proposals: nothing happens until something is sold, and
a vital part of the selling of professional services is the proposal.

the connection between these skills and the bottom line. Read my report, "Success Account: a business case for
effective business writing skills by accountants", to understand this vital connection.
