health insurance expense: warehouse

Under the accrual method of accounting, this account reports the employer's portion of the health insurance cost incurred by the company during the period indicated in the heading of the income statement, whether or not the company has paid/remitted the insurance premiums within this time period. Since this account involves the warehouse function of the business, the health insurance expense should be reported in the same section of the company's income statement as the warehouse salaries and wages are reported.
