comment Why was Ted Beneke hiding revenue in Beneke Fabricators?
If I recall correctly, they don't share any details. The company hid profits to avoid pay taxes, which means they either earned money that they never reported to the IRS (which in turn suggests that they were getting paid in cash, because other forms of payment are trivially tracked by the authorities), or they inflated expenses in order to make profitable work look unprofitable.

@BrettFromLA To be clear I think this movie is immensely enjoyable; the cartoonish stupidity is part of the charm. I was just wondering if they bothered explaining why the ship was battle-ready at some point I missed, or if they just decided to run with it.

A fine suggestion but one that, in this case, did not work.

My example was overly simplified. Sorry. Better example above.
