1. Overview of Accounts Receivable. When goods or services are sold to a customer, and the customer is allowed to pay at a later date, this is known as selling on credit, and creates a liability for the customer to pay the seller.
2. Receivables Under the Accrual and Cash Basis of Accounting. If the seller is operating under the cash basis of accounting, it only record transactions in its accounting records (which are then compiled into the financial statements) when cash is either paid or received.
3. Recording Sales of Goods on Credit. If the seller were to sell goods to a customer on credit, then not only would it have to record the sale and related account receivable (as was the case for the sale of services), but it would also record the reduction in inventory that was sold to the customer, which then appears in the cost of goods sold expense.
4. Accounting for Bad Debt. If a company sells on credit, customers will occasionally be unable to pay, in which case the seller should charge the account receivable to expense as a bad debt.
5. Accounting for Early Payment Discounts. If a company offers customers a discount if they pay early and they take advantage of the offer, then they will pay an amount less than the invoice total.
6. The Accounts Receivable Aging. All outstanding accounts receivable are compiled into the accounts receivable aging report, which is typically structured to show invoices that are current, overdue by 0 to 30 days, by 31 to 60 days, 61 to 90 days, or 90+ days.
