COUPON RATE is the annual interest rate of a bond.
PROVISION, generally, is to prepare in advance for an event that is projected to take place in the future. In accounting, it is an amount charged against profits for a specific liability (for example: bad debts, depreciation or taxes). A liability may be known, but the amount is often uncertain. This uncertainty may lead to an adjustment in a later income statement once the final amount of the liability is ascertained.
SHORT TERM DEBT is any debt owed by a company that is due and payable within one year. The debt is often made up of short-term bank loans the company is liable for.
