(from Accountancy Today) Nearly two-thirds of corporate controllers feel pressure to “cook the books,” according to a new international survey. Only 36 percent of the controllers surveyed said they have never felt such pressure. Among those who had, 10 percent reported this is a regular part of their job. For 32 percent such pressure is an exception.
