Embracing the Year of the Dog, Happy Chinese New Year from AccountingSuite

new year day

In the Chinese Zodiac, the year of the dog begins today, February 16 2018. According to the Chinese calendar, the year of the dog is the eleventh year of a 12-year cycle. Each year is represented by a different animal, and each animal has associated beautiful myths, legends, and traditions and idiosyncrasies. The Chinese Zodiac puts a great importance on your date of birth, even assigning specific personality traits to people based on when you were born. If you were born in the year of the dog, you might be considered friendly, intelligent, responsible, and loyal. Sound like you?

For people born in the year of the dog, this new year might pose a few unique challenges related to age, according to the Chinese Zodiac. But don’t fret, you’ll be in good company. Some famous names you might recognize who were also born under the dog sign include Prince William (1982), Mariah Carey (1970), Michael Jackson (1958), Al Green (1946), and Gloria Steinem (1934).

Here’s to the year of the dog

If you know us well, you likely already know that we’re proud dog people here at AccountingSuite. For us, dogs aren’t only a symbol of friendship and fun. We believe man’s best friend also epitomizes a certain unrivaled loyalty and trust that we embrace in every aspect of what we do and the products we create.

In fact, you’ll find homage to the dog in our logo, and we’ve even named many of our product enhancements after dog breeds, and have included information on them from Afador to Zuchon.

AccountingSuite would like to celebrate the year of the dog in 2018 by continuing to practice our utmost honesty and loyalty to our teams and the accountants we partner with. We truly hope that that same loyalty and faithfulness to accountants is passed on to the businesses and individuals they serve every day. 

Thank you to loyal accountants

If you’re an accountant, there’s a good chance you intrinsically identify with the traits of the zodiac symbol of the dog, even if you weren’t born under the dog sign. The success of the work accountants do is tremendously dependent on the ability to be honest and develop a strong sense of trust with clients.

Accountants have the very important responsibility of dealing with their client’s money — and the sensitive information behind it — in an ethical, and transparent manner. And by maintaining this respect and consideration for the clients you work with, you create a mutual loyalty that clients value most, and a reputation that will help you to grow your practice.

So without further adieu, we’d like to say thank you to our amazing accounting partners, and to everyone working on bringing a bolder brand of loyalty, trust, and compassion to business. If you are looking for the same loyalty from an accounting software partner, look no further. AccountingSuite has gone all-in our accountants as partners and we won’t under-cut you to your clients or buy fancy Super Bowl ads that replace your services. Happy Chinese New Year! The next year of the dog won’t roll around again until 2030, so let’s make the next 12 months a dog year to remember! Contact us for a demo or to learn about our Rockstar partner program

P.S. We were kind of already ahead of this whole theme when we named 2018 Year of the Accountant. You are our best friends and rockstars every year ?
