The purpose of this paper is to discuss different components of accounting and discuss how they appear on financial statements. These topics are ones that accountants run into everyday while on the job. Each case covers a company or companies and focuses on one of the major themes of the accounting process for that company. Along with this it also gives us a set of scenarios to discuss. These scenarios forced me to dive deeper into the financial statements to see how this is related to the United States generally accepted accounting principles. These cases go far beyond the everyday journal entries we see perceived most accountants doing.
