During the course you will be required to develop a Course Project having to do with writing notes for the financial statements of a fictitious Company. Create Income Statement, Retained Earnings Statement and Balance Sheet for a fictitious Company. While creating the financial statements make sure that you include relevant items, to be able to write the disclosure notes for the items detailed below. You will hand in the project at the end of Week 7. In order to assist you in writing the notes, as an example the .corporate.walmart.com/66/e5/9ff9a87445949173fde56316ac5f/2014-annual-report.pdf">2014 Annual Report of Walmart is made available for you to use. Please go over page # 42 to 45 for Note # 1 " Summary of Significant Accounting Policies" and pages 45-61 for Note # 2 of this report. Although you may use these as an example, you are not to use their actual notes, or the notes from any other company, because this would be considered plagiarism (and if discovered, would result in a grade of “F,” or zero points for the assignment).

Notes 2–10+: Consisting of at least the items below.
