Accrual vs. Cash
Each week, you will be asked to respond to the prompt or prompts in the discussion forum. Your initial post should be 75-150 words in length, and is due on Sunday. By Tuesday, you should respond to two additional posts from your peers. If you have not done so lately, please review the Rules of Discussion.
For your follow up post…review the responses provided by your peers. Engage in conversation, or even civil debate, as you discuss their insights and viewpoints. You may ask questions for clarification (if you are confused by their initial post) or pose questions that advance the conversation. You might even find a topic that leads you to further research in the area!
There are two types of basic accounting methods: Cash Base Accounting and Accrual Base Accounting. Find an article that discusses on an organization’s accounting methods (cash-based or accrual-based) or provide a real-life example. Then, share with the class the selected example’s basic accounting method and the method’s characteristics. Go to at least two other colleagues’ posts that present the other type of basic accounting method and share the difference between the methods.
