There are two basic recording methods that bookkeepers will use in accounting: Cash Basis and Accrual Method. In Cash Basis accounting, revenues and expenses are only recorded when there is a cash transaction, not when a sale or purchase actually occurs. This method is used for personal income taxes, some small business income taxes, and basic corporate accounting. However, the preferred method of corporate accounting is through accrual. Accrual is the process of allocating revenue and related expenses to the period in which the transaction actually occurs, rather than when payment is made or received. Accountants use the accrual method to make financial statements clearer period to period.
