A current liability account that reports the amounts owed to the utility companies for electricity, gas, water, phone as of the date of the balance sheet. If a utility bill has not been received, the company will have to estimate the amount owed for the service it has used up to the balance sheet date. Instead of using a separate account for utilities payable, the amounts owed are often included in Accounts Payable.
