SEC 10-K Paper
You will write a 3-page paper, single-spaced, one-inch margins, 12 pt font, with double space between paragraphs. Your paper should comment on the financial statements for your company as they relate to the information presented in chapters 1-10 of your textbook, including the notes to the financial statements. ** Use headings in your paper such as Accounts Receivable and Inventory (topics from our textbook; other examples would be Balance Sheet and Income Statement). Please keep your paper to no more than 3 pages.
Take care to avoid academic dishonesty. Write your paper, read it, and edit. Use your own words – you will be required to use TurnItIn.com which will indicate similarities to other sources.
Please include a brief introduction of your company as well as a conclusion/summary at the end.
You will also be required to include the Income Statement and Balance Sheet as an attachment to your report (you can cut and paste directly from the 10-K report).
APA style is required for citations and a reference list.
Ask questions if any of the requirements are unclear.
Additional guidance for your paper and resources:
Page count does not include title page, tables and exhibits, table of contents, and reference list
Please include a title page (include your name on the title page)
Include a reference list (business classes use APA format)
Include in-text citations (business classes use APA format)
Your paper should use one-inch margins on the left, right, top, and bottom of each page, and font set at 12 point.
Write your paper, in your own words, using accounting words from our textbook and explaining how these relate to the financial statements of your company
