Chapter 8 receivables

Classification of Receivables

  • Accounts Receivable – used for selling merchandise or services on credit, and normally expected to be collected in a relatively short period.

  • Notes Receivable – used to grant credit on the basis of a formal instrument of credit, called a promissory note.

  • Other Receivables – interest receivable, taxes receivable, and receivables from officers or employees.


Chapter 8 receivables

Accounting for Uncollectible Accounts Receivable

The Direct Write-Off Method

  • This method is not consistent with the matching principle.

  • Accounts that prove to be uncollectible are written off in the year they become worthless.

  • Uncollectible Accounts Expenseis debited and Accounts Receivableis credited for each such transaction.

Accounting for Uncollectible Accounts Receivable

The Allowance Method

  • This method is consistent with the matching principle.

  • Management makes an estimate each year of the portion of accounts receivable that may not be collectible.

  • Uncollectible Accounts Expenseis debited and Allowance for Doubtful Accountsis credited.

  • Actual accounts that prove to be uncollectible are debited to Allowance for Doubtful Accountsand credited to Accounts Receivable.

Estimating Uncollectible Accounts Expense

The allowance method uses two ways to estimate the amount debited to Uncollectible Accounts Expense.

1.Estimate based on a percentage of sales.

If credit sales for the period are $300,000 and it is estimated that 1% will be uncollectible, the Uncollectible Accounts Expense is $3,000.

2.Estimate based on analysis of receivables.

If it is estimated that $3,390 of the receivables will be uncollectible and the Allowance for Uncollectible Accounts is $510, the Uncollectible Accounts Expenseis $2,880 ($3,390 – $510).

Characteristics of Notes Receivable

A promissory note is a written document containing a promise to pay:

  • a specific amount of money (principal)

  • to a specific person or company (payee)

  • at a specific place

  • on a specific date or upon demand

  • plus interest at a specific percentage of the principal (face) amount per year


Chapter 8 receivables

Calculating Interest and Maturity Value

We received a $2,500, 10%, 90-day note dated March 16, 2003.

Principal x Rate x Time = Interest

$2,500 x 10% x 90 /360 = $62.50

Principal + Interest = Maturity Value

$2,500 + $62.50 = $2,562.50

Understanding the 360-Day Year

  • In commercial transactions it is traditional to use a 360-day year.

  • The historic rationale for this procedure was ease of calculation which made sense before the computer and calculator age.

  • Why does this practice continue when most small calculators and desktop computers can present complex interest calculations in a few seconds?


Chapter 8 receivables

Another Look at the 360-Day Year

1.Assume a $100,000 note dated June 1 for 90 days at an interest rate of 12 percent. The textbook calculation is as follows:

$100,000 x (12 / 100) x (90 /360) = $3,000.00

2.A more precise calculation is as follows:

$100,000 x (12 / 100) x (90 /365) = $2,958.90

3.When large sums are involved, the 360-day method (known as ordinary interest or banker’s rule)

yields significantly more interest to the lender. It is used by banks and commercial organizations.

4.The second method (known as exact interest) is used by the federal government and the Federal Reserve System.

  • April 8, A 90-day, 12%, $1800 note receivable

  • May 3, discount at a bank, 14%.

  • Maturity day: July 7

  • Computer:

    • Maturity value: 1800+(1800*12*90/360)=1854

    • Discount: 1854*14%*65/360=46.87
