Accounts receivable refers to money that a person is owed, as opposed to money a person owes to someone else (known as an “account payable”). Most frequently, the term “accounts receivable” is used in the context of businesses, and refers to the moneys owed to a company by its customers for the value of goods and services the company already has provided. In and of itself, having accounts receivable isn’t necessarily a problem. The trouble comes when a company’s accounts receivable reaches a size that hinders the company’s ability to pay its own bills, and to grow. There is no single solution to the accounts-receivable dilemma. Some companies prefer to write-off old debts, while others choose more aggressive means of seeking what is owed, like filing a collections lawsuit. If you believe your business has a problem with accounts receivable that are hindering your company’s well-being, it may be time to speak with an account collections lawyer to discuss your options.
