Accounting Methods

a methodical approach to navigating complexities

Organizations must be flexible to be successful in today’s rapidly changing business environment. As revenue streams, distribution channels and resource sourcing become more fluid, internal accounting systems must also change to keep pace with internal and external reporting requirements. Organizations that go through such changes often benefit from a detailed review of their tax accounting methods.

Each item of income and deduction could have multiple correct methods of accounting for income tax purposes. The aim of a tax accounting methods review is to identify the most advantageous method, while also identifying any impermissible methods that should be changed. Changing the tax method of accounting for just one item can yield significant tax benefits.

Our DHG tax professional can help you navigate the impact of a changing business environment so that you can feel confident that your accounting methods are in sync with your business goals.
