Budgetary accounts

Accounts used in governmental accounting to record the budget amounts but not the actual amount.

During the accounting period, no other entries would be made to the budgetary account for esti- mated or real revenue. Then the end of the accounting period, the budget entry would be reversed.

The actual cash collections are entered as a credit in the subsidiary accounts, with the debit for the total to cash
