What is Accounts Receivable?

Any money your customers or clients owe you for the goods or services they purchased from you is considered your accounts receivable. It’s a way of tracking your sales if people pay you via invoice.

Accounts receivable represent the money your customers or clients owe you. Since it is expected that they will be paying you the money they owe you in the next few weeks, accounts receivable are recorded as an asset on your company’s balance sheet. They are not recorded as revenue.

Accounts receivable are part of accrual basis accounting, which is explained further here. A short summary of how accounts receivable work in accrual basis accounting is this: In accrual basis accounting, we record the transaction whether or not the cash has been received. When you make a sale or provide a service to your client that will be paid later, you create an invoice. Then, an entry is created in your books to credit the sales account and debit the accounts receivable account. Once you’ve been paid, your books will be updated to credit your accounts receivable account.

Why Should You Outsource Your Accounts Receivable?

For many business owners, outsourcing your accounts receivable is the most cost-effective and time-saving solution. 

Getting clients and customers to pay you for the goods or services they purchased from you can sometimes take time. Some clients or customers pay their invoices late. Some aren’t paying their invoices at all. That means you, or someone in your office has to take time away from a revenue-producing activity and spend time and money getting that invoice paid. 

Under accrual basis accounting, we record revenue at the same time we record the account receivable. Once the payment is received, the accounts are reconciled.

We track your late payments, bad debt expenses, manage allowances for uncollectible accounts, and your accounts receivable turnover ratio as part of handling your accounts receivable. 

What are Other Receivables?

In addition to your accounts receivable, you may also have other receivables. These may include 

  • Interest receivable
  • Income tax receivable
  • Insurance claims receivable
  • Receivables from employees

Generally, these other receivables are the result of transactions conducted outside the normal scope of your business. These are just as important to track in your accounts receivable, as you are expecting to be paid or reimbursed for these transactions. 

Ultimately, when you hire us to manage your accounts receivable, we will work with you to make sure your invoices are getting paid. From setting sound payment terms and conditions to creating financial incentives so people pay their invoices more quickly, we help you get paid.

Andrew Pikoff, J.D., The Pikoff Team

I’ve changed CPAs quite a few times during the years I have been in business, but I have stuck with Bookkeeping Unlimited for the high level of service. The staff is so friendly and I often have last minute emergencies they are always willing to handle. Besides the fact that every CPA I have used loves them, they have been available to help me with other business issues I could not have handled myself. Whether it be with a government audit, unemployment insurance issues or just some simple advice, they are always available to help.
