Course Description

If a company’s existence is measured by revenue, then its lifeblood must be how well it manages accounts receivable. Many business executives say that a sale isn’t a sale until the money has been collected. This course reviews best practices in the accounts receivable function of small to medium commercial entities as it relates to invoicing and pricing. It also focuses on credit best practices including credit evaluation, use of Z Score and other methods of securing customer payment when open-ended credit is deemed too risky. This course also explores collection best practices, including those related to account reconciliation. Payment application, internal controls, and available banking technology are also reviewed.

Learning Objectives

Upon successful completion of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Associate the importance of the billing, pricing, and credit memo process to accounts receivable best practices

  • Define and use the Altman Z score and other ratios in evaluating customers
  • Recognize nontraditional methods to secure customer payment
