We will discuss receivables, focusing on accounts receivable and notes receivable, reviewing the accounts receivable cycle, the journal entries for recording accounts receivable, and related subsidiary ledgers.

We will discuss bad debt and valuing ofaccounts receivable using two methods, the allowance method and the direct write off method. The accounts receivable account represents money owed to the company butthere will be times when the companycannot collect on the account receivables.

Under the direct write off method, we write off the accounts receivable as we determine they are not collectible. The direct write off method does not do a good job of representing the accounts receivable account’strue value and does not do a good job of conformingto the matching principle, matching up expenses with the related revenue it was used to generate.

The allowance method does a better job of valuingaccounts receivableand conforming to the matchingprinciple and is the method preferred. The allowance method is more complex, however, and requires the use of estimates.

We will also discuss notes receivable, the journal entry for recording notes receivable, and for receivingpaymenton a note receivable. We will cover detailed methods for calculating simple interest.
