From Cash to Accrual Accounting,  is it Time to Make the Switch?


Read This if you Want Valuable Insights on When and Why to Switch to Accrual Accounting.

This topic comes up all the time when companies are trying to figure out the right accounting method for their business.  They want to move fast (cash accounting) but they also want to accurately reflect their profit performance (accrual accounting).  This FREE eBook provides valuable insights into how to think about cash vs. accrual accounting, plus a hybrid method, from a couple of finance and accounting experts who have lived the shift in their own companies.

You will be a lot smarter after you review this eBook but I recommend companies with a history of cash accounting to consult your accounting team or partner before making the decision.  There are a lot of moving parts, you want to make sure it’s well documented!

That said, understanding the pros and cons is a strategic, not just a tactical, consideration.  Give this a read and move faster to action.

From Cash to Accrual Accounting will provide answers to:

  1. What is the definition of cash vs. accrual?
  2. When is the right time to switch?
  3. How do I go about making this switch for specific line items?

Read this eBook if you are asking the following:

  1. Am I interested in taking on any outside investment and how do I make sure my financials are ready for outside review?  
  2. Is the timing right for me to move toward a new accounting model and how much time/effort will it take?
  3. I need to get smarter on financial statements, but how do I use the cash flow statement to better understand and forecast cash?
  4. Do I have the right accounting team in place to provide me guidance on how to most strategically manage my books?
