Thanks, Janet.  We assume also assume we need to use double entry, accrual 
basis.  While we know it would meet the requirements, we haven't been able to 
determine of something lesser would also suffice.In the mean time, we were able 
to talk directly to HUD and apparently HUD does not charge an application fee 
for FHA project approval and while HOA's typically hire a company to do it, 
some communities have been successful doing it independently.Lamaia

I'm sorry that I do not know FHA requirements. But I am guessing that a
double entry accounting system would be required. It is the standard for
accounting. Ordinary taxpayers use cash basis. Businesses use accrual
basis. Good luck.
