Accounting Transactions Consider ABC Company. It sells most of its goods on account. During December 2004, ABC sell goods costing $40,000 for $80,000 on account. If ABC waits until it collects the cash to record the sale, it will record the expense (incurred to buy the goods) in 2004, the revenue in 2005!

Matching Rule The Matching Rule: We want to record revenues during the same time period as the expenses incurred to earn them. Hence, we use accrual accounting and record expenses when they are incurred and revenues when they are earned. The timing of cash outflows or inflows is irrelevant!

   Accrual accounting consists of all techniques used to apply the matching rule. When revenue is recorded before cash is received, a receivable is also recorded. When an expense is recorded before cash is paid, a payable is also recorded. Determining when a sale takes place is known as revenue recognition.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
