Bus/Financial - Accounting
German term or phrase: Bilanzierung
Der Verein hat im Wirtschaftsjahr 2003 von der Einnahmen-Ausgaben-Rechnung auf Bilanzierung nach handelsrechtlichen Vorschriften umgestellt. Aus der Auflösung des aufgrund steuerrechtlicher Vorschriften gebildeten Sonderpostens mit Rücklageanteil ergibt sich für das aktuelle Berichtsjahr letztmalig ein Ertrag i.H.v. T€ XX.

Can one just say "balance-sheet method" or is there something better?

Thanks.

accounting


Explanation:
The association has changed its financial reporting method from income-expenditure accounting to be in compliance with the requirements of commerce law.


Probably, 'adapt' instead of 'change' is better
