Hi guys. As you all know it is recommended to show your formula in excel and there are few ways to do it. One is copy and pasting every cell that contains formula into another cell and just put apostrophe in front of the formula. This is time consuming.
Other way is to click on show formula but this shows the entire sheet as formula not specific cell as formula.
Please advise if there is another method?

Please help me understand this.
I understand that there are exception for 50% deductible limit for meal and entertainment, i.e. when meals are paid for Christmas party, it's 100% deductible.
But how about the HST Input Tax Credit?
Is it deductible at 13% rate, or subject to 50% rate and only 6.5% eligible for ITC?

To whom have already written the Assurance Elective exam as part of the CPA PEP process... could someone bridge the gap on some common themes you found were tested and how different the 2 cases provided were? For example, were some topics tested on both cases or were both cases individually very different that there was no overlap of topics/ discussions etc
Anything that surprised you when doing the actual exam? Like time management issues and any other recommendations you may want future writers to be aware of. Thanks
I am a repeat writer for CFE Day 1 and was wondering what material will be provided by CPA to repeat writers if looking to challenge FVT case. I did not do the FVT case in 2017 so I do have any of the sample cases from capstone 2 and is my first time attempting FVT case.
Can anyone tell me where and how can I get 2017 Capstone 2 cases for practice? Thank you.
I have directly enrolled in Capstone 2 for 2018, so does anyone have the Capstone 1 case for 2018.
I am a repeat CFE writer. Previously my role on Day 2 was assurance, however, since I do not have much audit experience I am planning to switch my in-depth elective to Tax.
Is this a good idea?
I would like to know how many weeks etc...is a general study period for sitting the CFE exam. I am advised that the old CA program candidates took a month off to study.
Thanks for your feedback.
I recently registered for CPA PEP. I understand that the CPA PEP and CFE needs to be completed within 6 Years. However, i couldn't find any information in regards to the time limit of the 30 months CPA practical experience requirements. Is there a time limit for CPA for the 30 months requirement? If so, does the clock start ticking when i start CPA PEP?
