Viewing Customer Aging - 20b

Purpose:   To view customer aging using ctcLink.

Audience:  Accounts Receivable staff.

Aging accounts receivable is the process of updating the age of customers' outstanding items, based on the item accounting date. In order to properly manage accounts receivable and cash flow, you should age the items at predefined intervals.

A company may age its receivables on a daily, bi-weekly, or weekly basis. Once receivables are aged, dunning letters and statements can be sent and analysis, planning, and collection work can be performed.
