You are the new Senior Accountant for the Abbott Company, Inc. a closely held and successful family business. Mr. Mark Smith, Chief Financial Officer, has asked you to give a CPE presentation to the new staff accountants on the proper accounting treatment including the importance of using adjustment entries when preparing financial statements.

Please explain. 2) What types of adjusting entries are necessary when a company is preparing and issuing interim financial statements? Please explain your answer by illustrating and using specific examples. NOTE: more writing is required than simply giving me journal entries!
