Verify that your company has inventory and accounts receivable. The company must sell a tangible product (not services). Do not select hotels, financial service providers, or other service oriented businesses.Most students find their SEC 10-K file on the company website. Look for links for About Us, Company Information, or Investors, and then SEC and Annual (often in a drop-down menu). Post the name of your company, the web link, and how you located your SEC 10-K in the SEC 10-K discussion for my approval. You must select a company that has not been previously selected so that everyone has a different company. You will post comments about your company as we discuss inventory methods, and again as we discuss accounts receivable and bad debts.Also, describe the fiscal year for your company (is it December 31 or the last Saturday in January, etc.). Look for the name of the outside audit firm (there will be a letter on the financial statements and internal control). Major public accounting firms include Deloitte, KPMG, pwc/ PricewaterhouseCoopers, and Ernst & Young (there are others). Other postings may be required.The posting process will assist you in writing the paper.Use your own words. Do not copy and paste material. If you copy and paste any financial statements or areas from the SEC 10-K, this will not count toward the page length requirement.Take care to avoid issues of academic dishonesty. Your works cited list should include the web address for your SEC 10-K so that I can access it as you did. Your works cited list should also include our textbook. Any other resources should be cited in text using APA style. We use APA style for in-text citations and for the works cited list.
