In 1864, Sir John met Carroll in Alice’s Adventure in wonderland. It was the start of his success, which continued with “Thought of the Looking Glass” in 1871. After a while, Sir John decided not to work with Carroll and returned to work with Punch as a political cartoonist.

In 1893, Sir John has acknowledged a knighthood for his contribution as a political cartoonist at Punch in addition to his illustrations in the two books by Carroll. 

Google doodle has showcased his illustration wherein a girl named Alice is looking up at the Cheshire cat in a tree. Letter L of the google is made by the bent arm of Alice. The google doodle is a photograph of the drawing in Tenniel’s style.

Sir John Tenniel died on 25th February  1914, at the age of ninety-three. He died  3 days before his twenty-fourth birthday. 

May his soul rest in peace!

The main reports (VAT model 303, the income statement and the balance sheet) are generated at the moment, automatically. In this way, last-minute accounting jams are avoided at the end of the quarter.

This advantage is closely related to the previous one. By being able to keep an automatic accounting, you can keep track of current income and expenses This will let you know the payment status of your bills and your expenses. In addition, another reason why it is better to use an online billing program is to facilitate bank reconciliation.
