What is meant by Salaries Outstanding Accounts?
 Question Submitted By :: Accounting-AllOther
I also faced this Question!!     Answer Posted By  
# 1
Salaries Outstanding accounts are a personal a\c.

If a business is not able to pay salary for the last two
months to all the workers or some of them the workers will
be treated as the creditors of the business(since they have
given the services but in exchange they have not been paid
for). The amount due to these employees will be added and
put under one common title "Salaries Outstanding account".

Thus the salary outstanding account is a personnal account
representing the employees.

# 3
"Outstanding" means "due for payment but not paid yet".
Thus, Salaries outstanding accounts represent the amount of
salary that the organization has to pay its employees,
which has not paid to them yet or which the employees has
not collected yet.

Here, the term due represents the account closing period.
For example, if an organization is paying salaries only on
4th of the following month and closing its books monthly,
then as on the last business day of every month, all the
salary for the particular month should be booked as
outstanding salary to disclose the accurate profit for the
month and the correct financial position of the company.

From Accounting perspective, while booking outstanding
salaries, we should be debiting "Employees' Salary Account"
and credit "Salaries Outstanding Account" (since we have
not paid it yet). At the time of actual payment of Salary,
we will reverse salary outstanding by debiting it and
crediting "Cash / Bank Account".

salaries outstanding a/c is a representative personal a/c.
The rule for this a/c according to traditional approach is
debit the debtor and credit the creditor.Salary outstanding
a/c represents those to whom the firm has to pay therefore
it is the liability of the firm.Now as per the modern
approach salary outstanding a/c will be credited since its a
liability and also they are creditors of the firm so the a/c
will be credited as per the traditional approach
