Burton's Legal Thesaurus. . 2006

Periodic outgoings such as gas, telephone business rates and rent are paid in advance or arrears. Where a property changes hands during a period of account, the seller will recover a proportion of any advance payments and pay to the buyer a proportion of any payments due in arrears. Payments are usually apportioned on a time basis.
