This report is an analysis of thirteen case studies concerning various topics in accounting. The purpose of this report is to analyze, explain, and evaluate specific concepts in accounting through the thirteen case studies. These case studies were prepared over the course of the 2015-2016 academic year through the ACCY 420 honors course. Accounting concepts covered throughout the cases include: pensions, tax research, financial reporting, and long-term liabilities. Each case study includes the executive summary, the questions responses, and additional calculations. Some case studies are about real world companies while others involve fictional companies and accounting scenarios. The ultimate goal of this report is to explain and discuss specific accounting concepts through real and fictitious scenarios in a manner that anyone could reasonably understand.
