Matching or Accrual 

The accrual concept makes a distinction among the receipt of cash and the right to receive it, and the payment of cash and legal obligation to pay it.  In fact business operations, the obligation to pay and the actual movement of cash might not coincide.

The accrual concept needs recognition of revenue and expenses on a comparable basis that is revenue and expense are allocated to a particular accounting period on a consistent basis.
