I'm a bookkeeper. I have to balance before reconciliation from the accountant's office. I also have to keep the boardmembers happy (my boss's grandest dream). So if a boardmember detests the totals of his expense account. I take the difference and subdivide into smaller units (to not not be seen) and add into other expense accounts. I know this sound very bad, but it's a must type of hush-hush. I just have to make sure that the totals are not too large to be noticed and then questionned.
Has anyone had to deal with the stress of "cooking" the financial books? How do you deal when your job is important is dire economic times?
