Cash vs Accrual Basis Accounting?

QUESTION
Cash vs Accrual Basis Accounting?
I’m writing a ten page paper on different accounting types, but I’m having trouble finding enough to fill up ten full pages (double spaced). Here’s what my paragraphs look like so far:

1. Introduction
2. Difference in the two accounting types
3. Advantages/disadvantages of cash basis
4. Advantages/disadvantages of accrual basis
5. When to use one method over another and legalities of each method
6. Conclusion

So far with these paragraphs, its 4 pages long. I have fluffed them up enough that if I did any more it would be repetitive and a bad essay. Any suggestions of other points I can add into the essay to help create 6 more pages? sigh..

ANSWER
I feel like I’d need to see your essay to help you because I’m not sure some things you might cover in one topic.

I might talk about:
cash flow
GAAP
how some people use a hybrid system
accounting principles violated like Matching Revenue to Expenses
maybe try to insert a table or image to your essay
maybe try to find a scandal related to the topic

I included some links in my sources I think you should look at
I’m not sure if you had to turn in your essay yet, but If you want me to look at it, you can email me at [email protected]
