Financial statements are a product of the accounting cycle. Think about two different companies, one a manufacturing company, the other a retail company. Why would different companies have different accounting cycles? Would you expect the steps of the accounting cycle to be the same for each company? Why or why not? Guided Response: Review several of your peers’ postings and identify what steps of the accounting cycle that you feel are the most critical. Respond to at least two of your peers and provide recommendations to extend their thinking. Challenge your peers by asking a question that may cause them to reevaluate their position on the accounting cycle.
