Aging reports are used to review information about your open items so as to know how much funds have been held up and with whom. Aging reports display the customers who have outstanding balances and the amount each customer owes us which also helps to expedite the collection process. Receivables aging reports Do Not include customers with a zero outstanding balance.
These reports can print both detail and summary information about your customer’s current and past due invoices, debit memos, and charge backs. Receivables also gives the option to see credit memos, on–account credits, unidentified payments, and on–account and unapplied cash amounts.
