In other words, these expenses are recognized before actual payment.  So, it is necessary to record to record it in the books because we have to show our total expenses in the profit and loss account whether it is paid or not as per the accrual concept of accounting. Following journal entry will be passed.

 Expense Account Debit Accrued Expense or outstanding expense or expense payable Account Credit
