Provisions or estimated liabilities, Cost Accounting

Where the liabilities are identified but the amounts cannot be precisely found, we estimate the liability and give for it as a liability. A common illustration is income tax payable. Unless the tax liability is found the amount payable cannot be exactly determined. There could be other illustrations too, such as product warranty expenses to be met and rapidly. The common practice is to evaluate these liabilities depends on past experience and make a provision for the same that is demonstrated as a part of liabilities.
