Cash received from debtors


Hi Roshan and thanks for your answers here.

Actually, everything above is correct as examples of income except for one item: "cash received from debtors."

This item is not actual income but rather just a cash receipt (not the same thing). It is just money being paid by people that owe you (called "debtors").

The income relating to these debts would have been recorded separately - usually in the form of sales or services rendered.

See the lesson on accrued income for a full explanation of the difference between income itself and the cash received as a result of making some income.
