The following paper examines the intersection between ethical accounting practices and good business. More specifically, the paper looks at how good accounting practices can bolster the professional standing and operation of a family-owned funeral and why it is that, morally and practically, scrupulously honest accounting practices are essential to the long-term viability of any family operation.

From the Paper:

"Few businesses depend more upon the goodwill of ordinary citizens than do funeral homes - especially family-owned funeral homes. Much of this, of course, is because the death of a loved one is such an intensely painful experience for all concerned and people want to know that those to whom they entrust the responsibility of preparing their loved one for the hereafter are scrupulously honest and compassionate. This paper will address the issue of trustworthiness by examining an article on accounting ethics and then applying the lessons learned from that article to a generic model of a family-owned funeral home. The paper will then make recommendations for improving a typical funeral home operation based on the ideas set forth in the article. "
