This thesis examines how to interpret and implement a variety of accounting standards. By using a variety of accounting cases, I have researched the issue at hand to determine the proper accounting standard that provides guidance on the way the issue must be treated. In some of these cases, such as the tax case, the guidance regarding the treatment of the tax percentages is very loose. In instances such as these, there may be several answers to the problem at hand. However, in many other cases, the guidance that accompanies the standards relating to the case are very straight-forward and results in the case having one and only one answer. These case results are meant to help others understand how the guidance that accompanies accounting standards can result in various applications of standards.
