Italian term or phrase: competenza economica
....al fine di fornire una rappresentazione più coerente con il principio generale della "competenza economica". (financial report)

English translation:accrual basis
Explanation:
'competenza' in Italian means 'expertise' or 'in relation to'.

Here it is used in the second meaning, where the financial results are presented on the balance sheet for the period on an accrual basis.

There is definitely no relation to 'competition'.

agree  Heathcliff: Exactly. ("Competition" = "competizione" or "concorrenza.") But how do you get to "accrual"? :)
