Many companies have an incentive to overstate revenue. By overstating their revenue, they are able to boost their net income, which often leads to increase in stock prices and potential capital investments.
However, overstating revenue is almost always an act of fraud. This act of fraud is often accomplished by reporting revenue for services not performed and recording transactions that never actually existed.
