This paper is a compilation of several analyses of various accounting methods and practices. Each chapter takes a different area of accounting and uses a well-known company to explain the theory behind a specific method or area of accounting. Through reference to these companies, the paper attempts to simplify some complex accounting processes. The real business examples help illustrate these concepts in a reader friendly format. The goal of this paper is to convey basic accounting principles to those without prior knowledge in accounting, allowing them to grasp the main concepts and understand the theory behind the standards of this profession.
