For unincorporated businesses, the cash basis will, for tax purposes, become the default method of preparing accounts from 2024/25 onwards, although it will be possible to opt out. In this session we’ll identify the types of client who could benefit from using the cash basis. We’ll also look at how the cash basis works, focussing on the transitional adjustments required when moving from accruals-based to cash-based accounting.

  • Pros and cons
