We want to share all the things we learned over 20 years of Controllership – the good, the bad, the big and the small – as we cover fundamentals, best practices, and many, many daily tips and tricks on how to work with Microsoft Dynamics NAV or Business Central in the real world, all with a specific focus on accounting.
