Exercise 8-3
Bemis Company is a rapidly growing start-up business. Its record-keeper, who was hired one year ago, left town after the company’s manager discovered that a large sum of money had disappeared over the past six months. An audit disclosed that the record-keeper had written and signed several checks made payable to her fiancé and then recorded the checks as salaries expense. The fiancé, who cashed the checks but never worked for the company, left town with the record-keeper. As a result, the company incurred an uninsured loss of $84,000. Evaluate Bemis’s internal control system and indicate which principles of internal control appear to have been ignored.

*Bemis Company should have established responsibilities better for the company by giving their record-keeper a vacation after six months of service therefore allowing another employee to take over
