At the end of the day, an audit firm’s clients do not like us. They tolerate us as a necessary evil, but in their defense, not many people would be able to tolerate us. For those not in the profession, imagine this: a team of professionals questioning how you do your job, pointing out all the errors that you have made and going through all of your documents. However, we auditors do not like our clients because they get annoyed by us pointing out their errors and demanding documents and explanations. For those of you who would like to defuse some of the tension with your loyal clientele, I would refer you to a fellow bloggers’ post on how to get along with clients. Could come in handy! As for me, I will continue the cold war that has persisted for generations with our clients, only because it gives my day the occasional uptick in genuine humor.
