Cash basis accounting is allowed for tax purposes only for smaller entities, and is not acceptable under generally accepted accounting principles or international financial reporting standards. The cash basis is useful under the following circumstances: For simpler accounting systems with accounting personnel who are not familiar with the more intricate accrual basis of accounting Where there is no inventory to be tracked or valued

The cash method and the accrual method (sometimes called cash basis and accrual basis) are the two principal methods of keeping track of a business's income and expenses. In most cases, you can choose which method to use. Learn how they work and the advantages and disadvantages of each so you can choose the better one for your business. In a nutshell, these methods differ only in the timing of when transactions, including sales and purchases, are credited or debited to your accounts. Here's how each works: The cash method. The cash method is the more commonly used method of accounting in small business. Under the cash method, income is not counted until cash (or a check) is actually received, and expenses are not counted until they are actually paid. Thanks

The cash basis is a method of recording accounting transactions for revenue and expenses only when the corresponding cash is received or payments are made. Thus, you record revenue only when a customer pays for a billed product or service, and you record a payable only when it is paid by the company. Many small business owners may be using the cash basis without even realizing it, if they are recording business transactions primarily with a check book. Cash basis accounting is allowed for tax purposes only for smaller entities, and is not acceptable under generally accepted accounting principles or international financial reporting standards. The cash basis is useful under the following circumstances: For simpler accounting systems with accounting personnel who are not familiar with the more intricate accrual basis of accounting Where there is no inventory to be tracked or valued Where there is no need for an audit, as may be required by a lender When the company is in the services business (which implies that there is no inventory) The cash method can yield inaccurate results, because revenues may be recognized in a different period than the period in which related expenses are recognized.
