Acc225 Fundamental Accounting Principles

Exercise 8-3
Bemis Company is a rapidly growing start-up business. Its record keeper, who was hired one year ago, left town after the company’s manager discovered that a large sum of money had disappeared over the past six months. An audit disclosed that the record keeper had written and signed several checks made payable to her fiancé and then recorded the checks as salaries expense.
