Question 3 (10 marks)
Tom has just finished his CPA qualification and has been successful in obtaining employment at PCR Hotel Group Limited as the financial accountant. His position involves preparing monthly income statements for each hotel and presenting this to the board of directors, as well as supplying the bank with financial information.
During his first week, Tom noticed the cashier, Toni whispering to Peter, the Finance Director and secretly giving him a handful of cash which had come directly from the hotel takings. Tom spoke with Toni and she said if anyone finds out they would both lose their jobs. Toni also mentioned that Peter is using the money to gamble on the pokies. She said it doesn’t really matter, as Peter always pays the company back when he has a big win.
At the last board meeting, Tom presented the monthly results which included a big loss for a hotel which has a large mortgage with the bank. The directors were very concerned as to how this may affect the bank’s ability to continue lending them cash. After the meeting, Peter instructed Tom to prepare a different Income statement for the bank, and increase the sales by $100,000. Tom thought this should be fine, because Peter is not only the Finance Director, but also acts as the external auditor for the group. So he should know the best practice to follow.
In order to keep Tom’s skills up to date, the company has sponsored Tom to attend the yearly CPA conference. This is a good chance for Tom to learn about the new accounting standards and also network and meet other professionals. Tom met up with another accountant, Jenny who also works in the hospitality industry. After the conference they went out for a drink and started talking about some of their issues at work. Tom trusted Jenny and told her how much money each hotel was making and how worried he was about the hotel that is making a loss. Jenny was very understanding and gave him some advice.
