When your company sells goods and services to customers on credit where you don’t require them to pay ahead of time or at delivery, this creates an asset called an “Accounts Receivable.” The accounting process is based on the invoice you issue, which describes the goods or services you’ve sold, the amount owed (including sales taxes and freight charges), and then when payment is due.
Our Accounts Receivable services include sales invoicing, direct mailing, cash receipts, bank account reconciliation, cash flow analysis, and collections.
If this seems overwhelming or simply something you’d rather not have to deal with so you can focus on running your business, we can help! We’ll take care of the recording and maintenance of all your accounts receivables; including handling the following:
On occasion, customers you sold to on credit won’t end up paying. When this happens, you’ll need to account for bad debts properly. Bad debt accounting not only deals with the write-off of customers who don’t pay but with estimating the required allowance for bad debts account you need to hold in reserve.
Early Payment Discounts
If you offer customers a discount if they pay early or under certain terms, we can take care of the accounting so you always know where you stand and can effectively manage your discount programs.
Your accounts receivable data can reveal a lot about the financial health of your business. We can produce accounts receivable aging reports, which will show the number of invoice dues at select intervals, typically in 30 day increments up to 90+ days. Aging reports are essential for managing your collections effectively.
When your company orders or receives supplies, materials, or services before paying for them, these purchases are considered to be made on account or credit. Your supplier or vendor on the other end of the transaction is referred to as a creditor since you owe them for goods or services already shipped or rendered. This is why these purchases by your company are considered “Accounts Payable” in the accounting language.
If this seems overwhelming or simply something you’d rather not have to deal with so you can focus on running your business, we can help!
