Back Charge

A fee that a company has charged but has not collected by the end of an accounting period. A company usually sends an invoice for back charges on its own or with the next bill. For example, if one's water bill is $20 per month and one did not pay in April, one will likely have a bill for $40 (plus late charges) in May.
