A loan loss provision is an expense set aside as an allowance for uncollected loans and loan payments. This provision is used to cover a number of factors associated with potential loan losses, including bad loans, customer defaults, and renegotiated terms of a loan that incur lower-than-previously-estimated payments. Loan loss provisions are an adjustment to loan loss reserves and are also known as valuation allowances.1
