outstanding

outstanding
/aυt'stændɪŋ/ adjective
not yet paid or completed
outstanding debts debts which are waiting to be paid
outstanding orders orders received but not yet supplied
what is the amount outstanding? how much money is still owed?
matters outstanding from the previous meeting questions which were not settled at the previous meeting
COMMENT: Note the difference between ‘outstanding’ and ‘overdue’. If a debtor has 30 days credit, then his debts are outstanding until the end of the 30 days, and they only become overdue on the 31st day.
