Accounts Receivable is an accounting term. It refers to money owed to the business from customers, or debtors, at a specific date. These figures can arise where you have sent an invoice with credit terms and it hasn’t yet become due, or where an invoice is overdue.
Accounts Receivable is most often seen in Year End accounts to show the amount that was owed to the business at the Year End Date.
Accounts Receivable can also be called Trade Debtors.
