The speaker brings vast knowledge and experience to guide you through with the know-how of accounts receivable process, fraud, weaknesses, deficiencies and the efficient ways to deal with them.Why Should You Attend:

Accounts receivable represent your company’s efforts to generate revenue by providing goods or services to customers who are then allowed to make payments at a later date. Not all customers are able or willing to pay cash when making orders. Allowing payments on credit opens the market to more customers and expands a company’s ability to generate revenue and thus improve and maintain a healthy cash flow. It is an accounting requirement that all invoices generated are properly accounted for in an AR account with the company’s general ledger.
