 Journal of Accountancy: OCBOA financial statements: here's some practical guidance on a popular accounting option - other comprehensive basis of accounting
In cash-and modified-cash-basis statements, many of the measurement principles associated with GAAP simply don't exist; in tax-basis financial statements, the CPA already has addressed the measurement issues in tax returns he or she prepared for the client.
When clients ask about why they should let their CPA prepare financial statements using an OCBOA, practitioners should point out that one of the major benefits is that some clients can understand OCBOA statements better than GAAP-basis statements.
The advantage results from using another basis of accounting to prepare the financial statements and not from the level of service (audit, review or compilation) the CPA provides.
