This estimate will be based on past experience. Accordingly, provision will have to be created in the current period as the amount of discount is an expected loss for the entity. This provision is referred to as “Provision for Discount on Debtors”.Journal Entry for Provision for Discount on DebtorsProfit & Loss A/cDebit To Provision for Discount on Debtors A/cCreditTreatment of Provision for Discount on Debtors in Final AccountsFinancial StatementTreatmentProfit & Loss AccountPresented on the Debit side of Profit & Loss accountBalance SheetDeducted from Sundry Debtors under the head Current Assets (after deducting Bad Debts & Provision for Doubtful Debts)Extract of Profit & Loss account and Balance Sheet have been attached for better understanding.0Reply Share ShareShare on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedInShare on WhatsAppLeave an answerCancel replyYou must login to add an answer.
