This account shall include the amounts of all other noncurrent and accrued assets which are expected to be realized over the period following one year's time and which are not properly includable in any of the other noncurrent asset accounts as defined herein. For example, cash held by a licensee for payment in future years of race purses such as the purse for American National races shall be reflected in this account. Other items properly accounted for in this account shall include deferred charges and other miscellaneous assets which are unusual in nature or the proper final disposition of which is uncertain. Deferred charges is defined as the amount of charges and expenses to be assigned to future periods. Organizations expense is an example. Items in this account are distinguished from similar items classified as prepayments (see Account #130) by the reason that such charges are generally applicable over longer periods of time. Another distinction between a prepayment and a deferred charge is that a prepayment (i.e., insurance) is an amount incurred or paid for services not yet received or the benefit of which has not been fully realized whereas a deferred charge is a cost of service or goods already received but the income against which such costs are to be matched will not be received until a future period. The write-off of deferred charges is therefore made according to recognition of income from the related projects.
