These failures can produce significant financial losses to investors and creditors. Oftentimes, an accounting failure results from an incorrect application of revenue recognition concepts.

Determine which are "ok" and which are "not ok."(1) Goods were sold and shipped in late 20X5, but the product still requires substantial installation and setup services.
