An accountancy student asks a partner to explain ethics in accountancy.
The partner thinks for a moment and relates the following.
“Ms Murray, an elderly client of ours, came to see me last week and paid me $1000 in cash.
As she left, I counted the notes and they came to $1100.”
The student replied, “I see. So the ethics question is do I tell the client?”
“Nope! The question is do I tell my partner.”
