Brief on "Accrued Expense" For Cambodian and Others

Accrued expenses are expenses that have been incurred, but not yet paid for. To put it another way, an accrued expense is paid after being recorded on the books. Every adjusting entry for accrued expenses debits an expense account, increasing expenses on the income statement and reducing net income, and credits a payable account, increasing liabilities on the balance sheet.
