Cash accounting is a very important basic accounting concept and anybody who works with accounts should have a thorough knowledge and understanding of it. Cash accounting is a method of managing revenue and expenditure to track outgoings and incomings to a business or organisation - receipts are recorded during the period they are received, and the expenses in the period in which they are actually paid.

In this accounting course, you will be introduced to the practices and procedures of how cash accounting is done with income statements, cash flow statements and balance sheets. You will also learn how balance sheets have a relationship with the income statement that reflects actual revenue earned in a period of time.
