Quick question please. If you are preparing final accounts using the cash basis for a client. What is the correct accounting policy wording for this to include on the financial statements please?

    Depends if you are using simplified expenses:

    As the business turnover is less than £xx,xxx, the partners/proprietor have/has chosen to prepare the under the cash accounting basis, (as well as using simplified expenses).

    not the best but gets the job done :-)
