Accrued expense

Hi I hope someone can help. 

Last year end I posted an accrued expense for £300. The accounts were prepared and submitted. However when the supplier invoice came in it was for £325. Should I, at the first of the new accounting year, Dr retained earnings Cr expense? Otherwise there will be an expense of £25 in the new year which would be incorrect?

Many thanks

Hi Mash,

Accruals are often estimates.  The extra £25 will therefore be an expense in the new year.

Hope this helps, Fiona
