Accounts Receivable

Accounts Receivable

Are you spending your valuable time tracking down payments and keeping the billing system up to date? Are you not receiving your payments on time? Are you finding it difficult matching payments to invoices, constantly having to resend copies of invoices?

You are not alone. Businesses today face many challenges when it comes to their invoicing and Accounts Receivable (AR) process. This means your operations and production may need to slow down, missing revenue targets and hurting your business.

Good cash flow is crucial in every organization.

Whatever the size of your business, an AR clerk or analyst is a powerful addition.

AR has two broad functions:

  1. tracking revenue expected to be received (invoicing) and
  2. making efforts to collect those revenues.

Other roles include assisting in generating financial statements and designing customer-facing forms, like invoices. These functions need the support of IT systems, which AR personnel must understand.

AR functions also include performing credit checks on customers requesting credit. If the customers are late in paying, which has its apparent detrimental effects, the accounts receivable personnel attempts to collect the outstanding balance. They track who owes what and make reconciliatory adjustments to the accounts, finding and fixing input errors.

Decreased administrative costs, streamlined processes and an integrated collection system are some of the benefits of outsourcing AR, a vital finance and accounting function.
