Accrual Method 2 Accrual Method The difference between the cash basis of accounting and the accrual method is that the accrual method accounts for funds that are incoming or outgoing even if the actual transaction has not taken place yet.

In a cash basis system the grant funds would not be accounted for until they are received. In an accrual system revenue does not equal cash because this type of system revenue and expenses are based on the period in which they are earned, while cash basis is based on actual payments.
