Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Under the cash basis accounting revenues are often recorded on the financial statements in the period in which the cash is received from customers whereas expenses are recorded when the cash is paid out. On the other hand under accrual basis revenues from customers are recorded when they are earned  while expenses are recorded in the financial statements in the period in which they occurred or when they expired which is often different from the period in which payment occurred. 


Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.

Tutor went the extra mile to help me with this essay. Citations were a bit shaky but I appreciated how well he handled APA styles and how ok he was to change them even though I didnt specify. Got a B+ which is believable and acceptable.
