The app gives you a clear view of overdue receivables and their associated allowances, and you can drill down for details of individual customer accounts at journal entry level.

  • Chart showing overdue receivables and allowances by customer, country, credit risk class, and allowance structure

  • Details of individual accounts, including overdue receivables by aging category, and the type and amount of allowances created for that account

  • Allowances created manually for the specific account are shown separately from allowances calculated by the system
  • The total allowance for each customer account is shown as a total in the selected currency, and also as a percentage of the amount overdue
