Question 1 (1,000 words)
Find a newspaper article or web page report of an item of accounting news that refers to a current event, consideration, comment or decision that has been published after January 2020. Your article could also come from one of the professional journals. The article should not come from an academic journal as academic journals generally do not contain news articles or articles of less than one page and are usually only published 2 to 4 times a year.
Explain the article that you have found in your own words and clearly relate the concepts, ideas, and facts within the article to one or more of the theories or topics that you have studied this session. For example, this from The Australian in July 2018 could be linked to accounting regulation or measurement (and perhaps others). Provide a copy of the article or web page, with details of the source, date and page number with your answer.
