The content of your paper should focus on accounting issues and include words used in our accounting class, including financial accounting and the scope of our course, at a higher level than in Principles of Accounting since we are now in Intermediate Accounting. Use terms from our class and create displays using the SEC 10-K for your company. The use of headings will label the sections in your paper. Your goal is to explain the financial statements and the information of the SEC 10-K with the knowledge you learn from our class. While not explaining every item in the SEC 10-K, your paper should tell a story and illustrate your mastery of accounting terms and concepts. No more than one page should be devoted to your company’s history and non-financial information. Focus on the Notes to the Financial Statements and the MD&A.
A Power Point presentation (no more than 10 slides) will also need to be prepared to cover the highlights of your paper.
Note: The deliverable is to be five to seven pages, double-space, with APA format for citations and references. For information about APA format see page 3 General Rules for an APA Paper.
