The case is to be undertaken individually and students should independently prepare their assignment.
The financial reporting case study is a comprehensive case study which examines the specific application of case scenarios involving principally Topic 5 (Revenue recognition) and Topic 6 (The choice of accounting methods and case study). The case will also be used to examine student report writing skills, general accounting knowledge, and ability to critically evaluate complex case scenarios.

• For the in-text referencing from the accounting standards, you must cite the specific provisions including paragraph from the relevant AASB. One of the following two examples should be adopted: AASB 102:11 or AASB 102 para. 11. However, do not reproduce significant parts of the regulation. The focus should be on interpretation and application of the standard.

Plagiarism: All cases will be reviewed for plagiarism and independent content. The University has adopted the following definition of plagiarism:
Plagiarism is the act of misrepresenting as one's own original work the ideas, interpretations, words or creative works of another. These include published and unpublished documents, designs, music, sounds, images, photographs, computer codes and ideas gained through working in a group. These ideas, interpretations, words or works may be found in print and/or electronic media.
Students are encouraged to read the UQ Student Integrity and Misconduct policy (http://ppl.app.uq.edu.au/content/3.60.04-student-integrity-and-misconduct) which makes a comprehensive statement about the University's approach to plagiarism, including the approved use of plagiarism detection software, the consequences of plagiarism and the principles associated with preventing plagiarism.
Check the similarity index of your case report through turnitin. There could be zero mark for the cases such as cooperation between students; copy from case reports of students enrolled in previous semesters.
