This thesis includes twelve different cases of various topics in financial reporting, such as deferred income taxes, revenue recognition, marketable securities, and many others. The solutions to the cases were found in fulfillment of ACCY 420 at the University of Mississippi during the Fall of 2017 and the Spring of 2018. The thesis is formatted below so that the questions to each case are visible to the reader. When it was fitting, there are also journal entries, t-accounts, and tables to go along with the questions. Each case focuses on a different area of financial accounting with an emphasis on prevalent topics.
