Budgetary accounts

Accounts used in governmental accounting to record the budget amounts but not the actual amount. For example, at the beginning of the accounting period, the planned amount of tax revenue, revenue from license, and inflows from fines would be recorded as one amount in the budgetary account for estimated revenue of a city. 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. Each budgetary account has subsidiary accounts associated with it. The estimated revenues budgetary account may have subsidiary accounts that identify the individual sources of the revenues by type, such as fines, licenses, property taxes etc. The budget amount is entered in the subsidiary accounts with a debit. The actual cash collections are entered as a credit in the subsidiary accounts, with the debit for the total to cash
