Our last post on the workflow for a Cash Applications process was viewed by a whole lot of readers, I presume, people really found it valuable. Here is the link for the same.


While I was writing on Cash Applications, I received multiple requests from various readers, who wanted to have a high level overview of accounts receivable processes. Though I had given an overview in the first post in this series, I will cover this in a little more detail.


The accounts receivable processes are a function of the sales side of a business entity. This applies to both manufacturing / trading and service organizations as well. Any business entity will always have two ends to its working, one the receipt of goods / services on which they would work to add their value by converting these into products and services demanded by various consumers / clients / customers. This is basic to the fundamentals of business and economy. On the customer / client side, as the products / services get ready for delivery to the customer / client, a sale of these will emanate. As a process it could be as simple as a direct sale to a customer or may comprise of a number of pieces, which form the width of the accounts receivable function.

As the organizations grow larger, each function starts becoming an authority in itself.

I will continue this in the next post.
