  19. 19. Accounting • The difference between cash and accrual basis accounting has to do with the time frame in which revenues and expenses are recorded and reported. • Cash basis accounting will suffice if your business is a simple one. However, the accrual basis will give a more accurate picture of the results of business operations.
  20. 20. Cash Accounting • Revenues are reported on the income statement in the period in which the cash is received from customers. • Expenses are reported on the income statement when the cash is paid out. Focus on the amount of cash in bank and on making sure all bills are paid.
  21. 21. Accrual Basis Accounting • Revenues are reported on the income statement when they are earned - which often occurs before the cash is received from the customers. • Expenses are reported on the income statement in the period when they occur or when they expire - which is often in a period different from when the payment is made. Provides more information about the business and gives meaningfull financial reports.
  22. 22. Value • The extent to which a good or service is perceived by its customer to meet his or her needs or wants, measured by the customer’s willingness to pay for it • It depends more on the customer’s perception of the worth of the product than on its intrinsict value. How do we create the perception of value when we talk to our customers?
