Loan and Mortgage Terms Glossary

Deferred Income:

Any income that is received before it is due or before it is earned. Rent paid in advance is an example of deferred income that is received during one accounting period but earned in later accounting period. Interest received that applies to a subsequent period of the loan term is also deferred income. The crediting of the income is deferred until such time as it is earned. Until then, it is listed on a balance sheet as a current liability.
