http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Microsoft_PowerPoint

Powerpoint presentations made for the same by CA Firms which can be used as a internal document and maybe not external (to be shared with the customer/client) could be useful.

Do you feel the Powerpoint presentations on "Best practices for accounts audits" can be also shared with client/customer ?.

Awaiting your reply,

Thanks & Regards,
Prashant S Akerkar

Answer
Any presentation you share with a customer should be your own. You will not win or keep customer business by showing them a canned presentation built by someone else. And, your customers probably are not interested in a "best practices" they are interested in their company and your understanding of their needs.

Over 10 years with the IRS - recently retired. Handled thousands of cases - mostly for regular people that owed anywhere from a few hundred dollars to over $100,000.
