Why are Accounts Receivable Aging Reports so Important?

Posted by Gil Oliva on Fri, Apr 04, 2014 @ 07:53 AM

In order to structure a workable operating budget for your company, it is necessary to periodically generate an accounts receivable report showing the aging process for outstanding invoices for any goods and services supplied.

accounts receivable aging reportThis critical report allows you to carefully analyze the financial reliability of your customers. If one company is consistently late paying invoices, it should send out a warning flag that there is a possibility they are not succeeding in meeting their business goals. This could make them a potentially bad credit risk and therefore a bad account to work with.

To successfully meet monthly operating costs you need a steady revenue stream, and an accounts receivable aging report will show which companies are making regular, on-time payments. Without this information, it will be difficult to maintain a healthy cash flow if you are always worried about late payment on outstanding invoices.

Once you are able to assess which accounts constantly pay late, you can evaluate payment terms with your suppliers and make changes accordingly. For example if a customer consistently pays 5 days later than the payment terms agreed upon, and you have historically accepted the late payment, but your suppliers need payment earlier, you will eventually have problems making payments to your suppliers and jeopardize that relationship. This, in turn, could result in loss of customers, as suppliers lose faith in your company’s ability to pay bills in a timely fashion.

Building upon recent posts concerning cash flow, it seems that many companies are still taking longer than ever to pay their invoices. This is a dilemma for small businesses waiting on invoice payment to effectively cover operating costs.

Even though the economy is slowly recovering, many large corporations are still pushing smaller suppliers into long payment cycles of up to 90 days, threatening to back out of deals or find new sources if their demand for a 90 day payment cycle is not accepted. This can simply not be viable for some small businesses that do not have the sway to delay payment to their suppliers.

 Before we launch into the benefits of factoring your accounts receivables, let’s revisit a few ideas that may help the payment process along.
