Loan Loss Provision

Loan Loss Provision
An expense set aside as an allowance for bad loans (customer defaults, or terms of a loan have to be renegotiated, etc).

Also know as a "valuation allowance" or "valuation reserve".

This would be a bank's equivalent of a manufacturing company's allowance for returns on goods sold.
