Hi, my name is Shawn Jones, adjunct professor here at Argosy University. Today, we're discussing the topic of the accounting code of ethics. The accounting code of ethics is basically a behavior -- a model for how an accountant should act in being able to conduct...in being able to perform its daily job responsibilities. Simply put, it means that an accountant is not going to cook the books, so to speak -- that the data, the financial data or management data that is provided in the financial statements or management reports is accurate. That it provides a true perspective or accounting of what is going on within the company that investors, creditors, owners, other employees within the company can feel confident that what data is being provided is accurate and is recorded according to generally accepted accounting principles and that a behavior of an accountant is what it should be.
