The purpose of this paper is to analyze twelve key financial reporting issues and principles using case studies. These issues and principals include revenue recognition, deferred income taxes, common stock, long-term debt, U.S. GAAP, statement of cash flows, profitability, and investment decisions. Working through these case studies and analyzing these key financial reporting topics has provided a greater understanding of financial accounting and U.S. GAAP; an understanding that goes well beyond what was learned through lectures and exams.
