Ethics in accounting are concerned with how to make good and moral choices in regard to the preparation, presentation and disclosure of financial information. During the s and s, a series of financial reporting scandals brought this issue into the forefront. Knowing some of the issues presented in accounting ethics can help you ensure that you are considering some of the implications for the actions that you take with your own business.
Most accounting scandals over the last two decades have centered on fraudulent financial reporting. Fraudulent financial reporting is the misstatement of the financial statements by company management. Usually, this is carried out with the intent of misleading investors and maintaining the company's share price. While the effects of misleading financial reporting may boost the company's stock price in the short-term, there are almost always ill effects in the long run.
This short-term focus on company finances is sometimes known as "myopic management. On an individual employee level, the most common ethical issue in accounting is the misappropriation of assets. Misappropriation of assets is the use of company assets for any other purpose than company interests.
Otherwise known as stealing or embezzlement, misappropriation of assets can occur at nearly any level of the company and to nearly any degree. For example, a senior level executive may charge a family dinner to the company as a business expense. At the same time, a line-level production employee may take home office supplies for personal use. In both cases, misappropriation of assets has occurred.
As a subtopic of fraudulent financial reporting, disclosure violations are errors of ethical omission. While intentionally recording transactions in a manner that is not in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles is considered fraudulent financial reporting, the failure to disclose information to investors that could change their decisions about investing in the company could be considered fraudulent financial reporting, as well.
Company executives must walk a fine line; it is important for management to protect the company's proprietary information. However, if this information relates to a significant event, it may not be ethical to keep this information from the investors. Penalties for violations of accounting ethics laws have increased greatly since the passage of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of This legislation allows for harsh penalties for manipulating financial records, destroying information, interfering with an investigation and provides legal protection for whistle-blowers.
In addition, chief executives can be held criminally liable for the misreporting of their company. If accounting ethics wasn't an important consideration before, the higher stakes provided by the Sarbanes-Oxley Act have definitely upped the ante.

Accounting scandals are business scandals which arise from intentional manipulation of financial statements with the disclosure of financial misdeeds by trusted executives of corporations or governments. Such misdeeds typically involve complex methods for misusing or misdirecting funds, overstating revenues , understating expenses, overstating  the value of corporate assets, or underreporting the existence of liabilities this can be done either manually, or by the means of deep learning .

Вы болван, Стратмор, - сказал Хейл, сплюнув. - К вашему сведению, ваш ТРАНСТЕКСТ перегрелся. - Что ты говоришь? - засмеялся Стратмор. - Что же ты предлагаешь. Открыть дверь и вызвать сотрудников отдела систем безопасности, я угадал.
ГЛАВА 82 Когда мысль о последствиях звонка Стратмора в службу безопасности дошла до сознания Грега Хейла, его окатила парализующая волна паники.
Момент истины настал в одно ненастное октябрьское утро. Провели первый реальный тест. Несмотря на сомнения относительно быстродействия машины, в одном инженеры проявили единодушие: если все процессоры станут действовать параллельно, ТРАНСТЕКСТ будет очень мощным. Вопрос был лишь в том, насколько мощным.
Похоже, она от меня не отвяжется. И он решил не реагировать на сообщение. ГЛАВА 79 Стратмор спрятал пейджер в карман и, посмотрев в сторону Третьего узла, протянул руку, чтобы вести Сьюзан за. - Пошли. Но их пальцы не встретились.
