The loan agreement requires that the companyâ??s cash account balance be maintained at $200,000 or more, as reported monthly. At June 30, the cash balance is $80,000. You give this update to Lisa Infante, the financial vice president. Lisa is nervous and instructs you to keep the cash receipts book open for one additional day for purposes of the June 30 report to the insurance company. Lisa says, â??If we donâ??t get that cash balance over $200,000, weâ??ll default on our loan agreement. They could close us down, put us all out of our jobs!â? Lisa continues, â??I talked to Oconto Distributors (one of Linbargerâ??s largest customers) this morning. They said they sent us a check for $150,000 yesterday. We should receive it tomorrow. If we include just that one check in our cash balance, weâ??ll be in the clear. Itâ??s in the mail!â?Questions What is the accounting problem that the Linbarger Company faces? What are the ethical considerations in this case? Provide rationale for why these are ethical considerations. What are the negative impacts that can happen if you do not follow Lisa Infanteâ??s instructions to wait one more day to post the balance? Who will be negatively impacted if you do comply?
