Accounts receivable process template
Here's the blueprint we created in Orchestly for a generic accounts receivable process. Yours can be much simpler or more complex, depending on your needs.
In this blueprint, if it's a first-time buyer, routine credit risk assessments are done, and the terms of sale are agreed upon before selling anything to the buyer. In the case of buyers who've been buying regularly on credit, the credit risk assessment report on record is verified and the process moves forward.
Once the purchase is done, an invoice is sent to the buyer. Any early payment discounts are applied, and the payment is received and recorded if it's made on time.
In the case of late payments, late-fee charges are applied (if any) and a new invoice is sent to the buyer. And if the payment is still not made, even after multiple collection attempts, the AR aging schedule report is analyzed—at which point either collection attempts are continued, or the sale is written off as uncollectible.
