Outstanding expenses, Cost Accounting

Expenses are usually recorded only while they are paid. The failure to record unpaid expenses in the accounts outcomes in an understatement of which expense and also an understatement of a liability. So as to avoid understatement of these expenses and liabilities, an adjustment entry is passed through debiting the expense account and crediting the personal account of the party to that amount is to be paid. If outstanding expenses show on the credit side of the trial balance after that they will be considered to the liability side of the balance sheet.
