    The £390 is fr the three months February, March, April (the quarter), however the year end is March. Therefore only 2 out of the 3 months are accrued. £390/3 * 2 = £260.

    This was a payment for expenses made in May 2006. Accounts are being prepared for up to end of March. But this payment is for the "quarter" (i.e. 3 months of a year) ended 30 April so this payment covers expenses for Feb, Mar and April. As the accounts are relevent for end of March we need to chop this figure into the 3 months (ie divide evenly!) then work out the accruals up to March.

    so 390/3 = £130 per month. For the months of Feb and March thats
    130 x 2 = £260 of accruals.
