There is no criteria as such in Provision entries. Actually the expenses pertaining to the previous year which are paid in the next year need a provision in the books. If no provision is made, then the expense will be disallowed in the year in which the payment is made (disallowed under Prior Period Exps.). Provisions are must, when the Assessee follows mercantile system of accounting.

Devendra

If u follow mercantile system of accounting u need to make a provision for such exp in the year to whichits related,in such a case entry will be Deited to relevant exp A/c, and Credited to expenses Payable A/c.

But if u follow the cash basis of accountind such exp will be allowed in the year in which it is paid.

can  you kindly explain the entry,,,


on 31 mar 2011 i made entry

telephone expenses ac dr ---   1500rs

provision for telephone expenses ac cr --- 1500 rs

 

and on 10 april i recd the telephone bills worth 1200/- kindly explain what the entry should be?

 

should i modify the journal entry made on 31-3-11 to Rs.1200 Rs. or shall i create a provision only after i receive the actual expenses, because i dont think so there will be any company who closes accounts on exact 31 mar, guess many companies make backdated entries, and is it good to make backdated entries, many times i make lot of backdated entries, so only after receiving tel bill can i make the amount of rs.1200 as provision?
