I'm a cash based accounting business. I hired a contractor in 2017, was invoiced in 2017, but the money didn't actually leave my account til February of 2018. I want to book it as a 2017 expense since that's how I actually view the business. \n\nIf I was accrual, this wouldn't be an issue, but now my accountant is saying I either need to move my entire business to accrual, or move the expense to 2018. I don't want to because it's a massive 0,000+ expense and doesn't reflect the true situation of the services being rendered 2017 and should've been paid 2017.
