Accrual Rate
This is the rate by which a pension from an earnings-related occupational pension scheme builds up from one year to another. The rate is shown as a fraction or a percentage of the member's final yearly salary.
Accrue
If something is accruing, it is building up day by day. If an organisation owes money for goods and services but has not received a bill up to the date it prepares its accounts, it will estimate what it owes. It will then include the debt in its accounts. This estimated liability is called an accrual.

This is a security (investment) which pays interest at regular intervals. When it is sold, interest may have built up and this interest will be paid to the new owner. Interest built up like this is called accrued interest.
Accumulation date
This is the date when income will be credited to a unit trust which reinvests its income (an accumulation unit), instead of paying the income out to the investors.
Accumulation unit
The type of unit trust which reinvests the income it earns, instead of paying it out immediately to the investors, is called an accumulation unit.

Ad valorem
If a duty is ad valorem the duty varies with the price of the asset which is being transferred.
