Hi Rajesh,

Liability Account is a Balance Sheet Account - Balance is carry forward to the next Year,where as
Expense is Profit & Loss Account - Balance will be (should) Zero for the next year.

Best Regards

A Liability is something that the business owes; e.g. if we take out a loan from the bank, we would record that as a Liability. The Liability stays in place until the loan is repaid, so at year end a Liability Account carries forward its balance into the new financial year.

An Expense is money paid out by the business for goods or services that will be consumed in the current financial year, e.g. goods purchased for resale, or salaries, or rent of premises. Since an Expense relates to the current year, at the year end an Expense Account does not carry forward its balance into the new financial year.

Cool HTH
