You will be placed in a real-world scenario in which you will take the role of an associate in a certified public accountant (CPA) firm. The CPA partners in the scenario would like to help you grow within the firm by getting you more contact with some of the larger clients. You will address questions from one of the firm’s most influential and growing clients by assembling and presenting the necessary information in report and presentation format. Your presentation should include spreadsheet examples. Topics addressed in the portfolio will cover partnership formation, bankruptcy, and acquisition of another company (which may be international). Your three milestone assignments will consist of shorter reports and supporting spreadsheets, which will prepare you for completing a comprehensive report, spreadsheets, and presentation. You should use your instructor’s feedback from the milestone submissions to improve your final report, spreadsheets, and presentation.

You will also discuss reporting requirements for business segments and discuss transparency in financial reporting. Lastly, you will consider the company’s potential international business deals, such as the impact of foreign exchange rates and the methods for translating financial statements.
