Dealing with business ethics

Ethics is something accountants – and business managers in general – need to be not only aware of, but actively apply. But what is ethics and how do you make an ethical decision!

In simple terms, ethics in a business means doing the right thing. Easier said than done in some cases. Obviously, complying with laws of the land is one thing that would be ethical to do. But have a look at my previous post, where short and long term come in to play.
