The accountant could have dropped off the last three digits in the income statement, but probably wouldn’t in most cases. Many accountants don’t like rounding off amounts reported in a financial statement, so you see every amount carried out to the last dollar, and sometimes even to the last penny. However, this gives a false sense of precision. Accounting for business transactions cannot be accurate down to the last dollar; this is nonsense. The late Kenneth Boulding, a well-known economist, once quipped that accountants would rather be precisely wrong than approximately correct.

In financial reports to investors and lenders, a business must obey authoritative accounting and financial reporting standards. If not, its financial reports would be misleading and possibly fraudulent, which could have dire consequences. Bookkeeping — the recordkeeping part of accounting — must be done well to ensure that the business’s financial information is timely, complete, accurate, and reliable — especially the numbers reported in its financial statements and tax returns. Wrong numbers in financial reports and tax returns can cause all sorts of trouble.
