Accruals


#1

Provisions made on income or expenditure where payments have not yet been completed. For example sales that have been made but not yet paid for or the purchase of stock that you have received but have not yet paid for.

Accruals are usually calculated during the preparation of a company’s financial statements and make it easier to see the difference between a company’s cash and invoice position.
