What Is Accounts Receivable?
Accounts receivable refers to any amount of money that is owed to your organization by debtors, customers, or clients, typically for goods or services. Organizations that allow their customers or clients to purchase their goods or services on credit most notably require accounts receivable services, although it is applicable to all types of businesses that require collection.
The Importance Of Professional Accounts Receivable Handling
If you have an unreliable accounts receivable system, you may fail to collect on money owed or consistently receive payments late. Also, an improper accounts receivable system can lead to improper documentation of financial transactions, resulting in potential tax concerns and other business complications. Entrusting your accounts receivable process to our outsourced accountants at Diener & Associates gives you peace of mind knowing that your accounts receivable is handled in the most professional and effective manner possible.
Example Of Accounts Receivable
Accounts receivable is applicable to all organization types, particularly those that rely on offering credit to their customers or clients. For example, a construction service may install garage doors for one of their clients. Rather than paying for the entire service up front, the construction service may allow the purchaser to make several payments. In this case, accounts receivable applies to the collection of money for the garage door installations, which may take place in the form of monthly payments.
