Assignment 17014

Dear Mr. Commerce,
I believe a company should estimate and record the anticipated uncollectible accounts because there should be a record of any bad debts of the company. By having documentation of this information it could help the company improve. We could record the revenues when earned; however, it is best to keep track of the revenues earned even before it comes in due to the Generally Accepted Accounting Principles.
In order for the company to keep loyal customers regardless of their debts we should continue to extend their credit unless it continues to get out of hand. Also in order to keep up with our competitors we should offer credit to our customers. However, the GAAP makes sure we recognize any expenses when incurred and also any revenue that tends to be associated with the expense to be recognized as well. Therefore, under the accrual basis of the GAAP we have to make sure it is recorded including the estimation of bad debts.
Yes, sir we do not currently have a standard policy for credit management in our company. However here is the policy we can utilize for granting, managing, and collecting accounts receivable for Commerce Commercials.
Policy
The overall policy of Commerce Commercial is to take the appropriate and cost effective actions to collect accounts receivable. The main objective is to make sure that any revenue generated by Commerce Commercial is collected and recognized by accrual basis or cash basis. The accrual basis method will be used if the payment is due anytime during or after the goods and services are sold. If payments for goods and services are required in advance then the cash basis method will be used.
