Being able to read and understand financial statements is key to gaining insights into the business and operations of a company. However, many financial statements contain indicators or "red flags" that something is or may be wrong, and that an in-depth analysis of the business may be warranted. This program will help you identify red flags and gain a basic understanding of what they may mean to your client and you including:
The different ways an accounting firm is "associated" with the financial statements
Why it is important to read and understand the Notes to Financial Statements
Potential red flags in Supplemental Financial Statements
What to do when you have identified a red flag
