There are two different accounting methods to record a business transaction: the Cash Method or the Accrual Method.

The Cash Method

Taxpayers record transactions when cash changes hands. This means you report all income in the year that you receive it and deduct expenses in the tax year that you paid them.

Hurdlr Premium uses the cash method by tracking your expenses and deposits as soon as they are fully processed by your credit card, bank account, or other integration.

The Accrual Method

Taxpayers record transactions when revenue is earned or expenses are incurred, rather than when cash changes hands. Accrual is the traditional method of accounting for business activity, because it better matches when business events can be recognized.

Hurdlr Pro uses the accrual method by recording the income on your General Ledger when an invoice is sent.
