Account Receivable (AR) is the amount of payment due to goods delivered or services used but haven't been paid yet. It is usually referred to outstanding invoices. In accounting, balance sheet report includes this term as part of company's assets since it is a legal obligation for particular customers to pay the debt.
If a company has receivables, it means the company provides credit as payment method to customers/clients for purchasing products/using services. Particular company gives this privilege to boost their sales. Also, it is to avoid cash or direct payment for specific transactions, especially for frequent customers. In trading businesses, it applies to distributor/resellers who purchase product in regular basis. In service businesses, it is given to clients who subscribe for monthly services, like electricity, gym memberships and internet subscription.
Account receivables are becoming issues when customers/clients are paying their invoices late. For small companies, it could affect their cash flow situation. Common causes are quality of delivered products/services which are not as good as being promised.
Some companies measure it by applying specific Key Performance Indicator (KPI) to help them finding the problems and improve it.
Common KPIs are :
1. Days Sales Outstanding (DSO)
DSO provides insight into collections during one point in time, usually periods of less than a year. DSO also is a measurement of time, how long it takes for you to collect payment after issuing an invoice.
2. Average Days Delinquent (ADD)
3. Collection Effectiveness Index (CEI)
CEI compares how much money was owed to the company and how much of that money was actually collected in the given time period, usually one year.
4. CEI vs DSO
5. Accounts Receivable Turnover Ratio (ART)
The ART measures how many times your company turns accounts receivable into cash during a period.
