Accounts Receivable Aging Report
Cash flow is very important to a company and nothing is more important in managing cash flow than knowing when and how much revenue you are expecting in payments from the sales your company makes to customers. The Accounts Receivable Aging report is a versatile report that provides information on the aging of customer balances. The Account Receivable Aging report does the following.
- Displays details for all document types
- Provides details of customers with outstanding balances
- Provides details of each receipt
- Helps you determine your cash flows
- Provides details for both posted and unposted documents
Depending on the parameter preferences you select, advances against sales orders and credit orders display in the report. Credit orders display only if advances have been received against them.
