  1. non-cash expense

    A non-cash expense is an accounting term referring to certain expenses that can be reported on an income statement without actually being paid with cash. These expenses are often depreciation or amortization, where the cost of an asset is spread across its lifespan. They reduce the company's earnings for tax purposes even though no actual cash has been spent. Non-cash expenses are important for financial analysis as they need to be added back in when analysing a company's cash flow.
