Accounting of monthly revenue billing

We bill our client for the services provided every month on 1st day of subsequent month. And the revenue is recorded for each month on the 1st day of subsequent month. The same happens for march month. 


Is the same correct, i.e say march 2020 bill being raised on 1st april 2020 and recognizing it as revenue for 2020-21 instead of revenue for 2019-20?

Accrual system emphasis on provisioning of expenses, but no where recording of income on accrual basis is suggested.

The basic concept in accrual accounting is that the income of your business is recognised when it is earned. This brings in the matching concept of accounting.

Accordingly, the business events are recognized by matching the costs incurred with the revenues earned at the time when the event/transaction occurs.
