When we start a company level business, its promoters pay
some expenses like legal fees, company registration fees and
MOA and AOA making fees and others which are helpful to
incorporate the company. So, preliminary expenses are those
primary expenses which are paid before the incorporation of
company. So, when company comes into existence after
incorporation, it is the duty of company to repay all these
expenses to its promoters. So, after paying all these
expenses, we treat all these preliminary expenses with
following ways : -

1. When company repays preliminary expenses

Preliminary expenses account Dr.

Cash or Bank account Cr.

2. Treatment in financial statements of company
