What Methods of Accounting Should I Use? 

The timing of income and expense recognition is an essential element of your company’s cash tax planning efforts. The Credits and Accounting Methods (“C/AM”) team can help you:

  • Identify opportunities to defer recognition of revenue
  • Accelerate expense deductions

Regardless of your company’s financial and operating status, you can utilize accounting method changes to create cash benefits that reduce your current tax expense and increase cash flow.

Considering an accounting method change?

While many opportunities exist, Cherry Bekaert also recognizes that many companies face considerable risk related to the use of impermissible methods of accounting. Our tax professionals can help you to understand the different types of accounting methods; use the correct methods of accounting; obtain audit protection in many cases; and mitigate risks by identifying potential opportunities to offset an unfavorable change. With our guidance, your company can develop innovative approaches to make the most efficient and accurate claims to tax authorities.

Take advantage of our accounting methods services, including:

  • Cash to Accrual
  • Accrual to Cash
  • Uniform Capitalization Rules
  • Depreciation Methods
  • Accelerated Expense Recognition
