Paul Jones is the accountant for a large company that produces and sells machinery. One of Paul's month-end responsibilities is to review the bank reconciliation that ties the bank balance to that reflected on the financial statements. The company has an average balance in the cash account of around $2,000,000, with many inflows and outflows occurring daily. Over the past 3 months, Paul has detected shortages in the account anywhere from $1,000 to $3,000 monthly. He has become concerned about this reoccurring issue and approaches his boss. After hearing the details, the boss responds "Ah, don't worry Paul, it's a really immaterial amount that the company doesn't miss. With as many transactions as we process, there's no way that we could ever balance to the penny!" After the chat, Paul has a funny feeling and is not sure whether to take the advice or to make further inquiry. Using both the required text and external resources, address the key points (concerns).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
