This week’s discussion again supports the Ethical Decisions in Accounting assignment due in Week 8, which addresses ethics and its importance in financial reporting. Please respond to the following:
- What would motivate you to speak up if your controller asked you to misclassify inventory as a fixed asset?
- What would cause you to stay silent?
- Would it make a difference if this was only a one-time request from the controller?
- Please include one quality academic source.
- Students can utilize Strayer University Online Library, academic articles, AICPA, FASB Home, PwC: Audit and Assurance, Consulting and Tax Services, EY US – Home | Building a Better Working World, Deloitte US | Audit, Consulting, Advisory, and Tax Services, The American Accounting Association, KPMG International – KPMG Global, or other government websites.
