The IRS has issued new regulations that generally take effect in 2014.  One item in the regulations requires  that you adopt a new accounting  policy before the beginning of the year in order to be able to take advantage of a new benefit with respect to writing off smaller asset purchases.

Most businesses will use the non-AFS policy.

Businesses that have annual financial statements audited by a CPA, may use the AFS policy.

We recommend that you review the document, print, sign and date it and retain it in your files.
