Didn't find your answer?

In view of the recent 'events' in the corporate world, the following accounting terms have been given new meanings:

EBITDA = Earnings Before I Tricked the Dumb Auditor
EBIT = Earnings Before Irregularities and Tampering
CEO = Chief Embezzlement Officer
CFO = Corporate Fraud Officer
EPS = Eventual Prison Sentence
FRS = Fraudulent Revenue Stream
SSAP = Secret Scheme for Adding to Profit
UITF = Unearned Income To Find

So why
is it only the mighty conglomerates that have the benefit of these accountancy practices?

Wish I had an accountant willing to fiddle the books, hide profit from the taxman, and shred all the evidence when he turns up. Any offers?
