making an ethical argument to uphold his firm’s integrity or even the integrity of the accounting firm. 2. Should the significance of the company as a client of your firm, in terms of the amount of fees paid to your firm each year, matter in making your decision? Ethically and morally, no there should not be any significance in this. Financial gain should not be a deciding factor. If the decision was based on that, it would be an unethical one.

WRITING ASSIGNMENT #1 3 3. What if, after considering all factors, you continue to feel that an adjustment to the company’s financial statements is warranted, but after a closed door meeting with the client, the partner on the audit (your boss) decides to agree with the client and tells you not to make the adjustment. How should you react? Working for an organization that does not uphold it’s ethical business practices when they matter is something that I could not overlook. I would make the other partners aware of the decision that I was advised to make by superior. I would let them know that it was a decision that I did not want to make and I knew that it was unethical. I would tell them that I seeked advisement from my supervisor and that was the decision I was forced to make.

    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.

    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.
