Many business and commercial lenders, plus credit analysts and portfolio managers, work primarily from company-prepared financial statements, along with business tax returns. One of the key issues in analyzing these documents is identifying the method of accounting being used. Much like two different, foreign languages can take the same text and render it into two different-looking documents, each method of accounting takes the same financial transactions and puts them together into two different-looking financial statements. Do you know the key differences in how cash and accrual method accounting handle these financial transactions? Kcan you “translate” between the two methods? Do you know which method your borrower is using?
This program provides a refresher for the key issues in determining which method of accounting is being used, and what it means for the analysis process. We also cover how and why either method is appropriate for some businesses. It’s not a matter of which one is “best,” it’s a matter of “fit.”
