Group 3 – Class Work 1 1. GAAP are the generally accepted accounting principles and are the rules for preparing financial statements. Comparability is a requirement for GAAP because it is important that a company’s financial statements and other documentation can be compared to similar businesses within its industry for benchmarking purposes. 2. An unqualified opinion or a clean opinion indicates that the company’s financial statements fairly present its financial condition in accordance with GAAP, given without any reservations. An example would be the matching principle; expenses incurred in generating revenues in a period are matched with these revenues. 3. The SEC is the federal agency that has the ability to implement rules that require US companies to use the International Financial Reporting Standards (IRFS). 4. The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act makes it a crime for any American company to make or promise to make payments or gifts to foreign officials, political candidates, or parties

    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.
