There are lots of transaction entries company has been made as per month wise e.g. rent, Salary, period-end or year-end adjustments entries. For example, company has been paid Salary or rent for every month in which some companies has been paid previous month Salary or rent to next month. It means March month salary has been paid in April month. So when company closing their books of account on 31st march they have not accounted March month expenses as it is not paid in March month which is paid in April month.

So in order to match the transaction entries of the month, the company creates the provisional entries to show accounting effect for Salary or rent transactions entries incurred in March month but not paid.

Salary A/c            Dr.

Rental expenses A/c      Dr.

To Provision for account payable (AP) A/c            Cr.
