Managing Accounts Receivable: Two Sample Policies for Consistency and Accuracy

This Accounts Receivable Policy establishes procedures to ensure consistency in a company’s accounting treatment of receivables. It also includes guidelines focused on how and when to reserve a receivable, write off a receivable and recover a receivable.
