    Ask Doug & Polly: What’s better for your business: cash or accrual accounting system? | Business News

Another benefit of cash accounting is that it typically has the effect of deferring some taxes, because it typically recognizes revenue more slowly and expenses more quickly than accrual systems. For example, a company starts a $25,000 job on Dec. 1 and completes it on Dec. 15.
