Depending on the report, your accounts receivable asset is shown in different ways.
- The “Receivable Journal Summary” shows the change in accounts receivable (how much it has gone up or down).
- Reports under the “Charge/Credit Summary” section show a beginning and ending balance (how much was owed at the start and end of the period).
- Reports like those under the “Account Balance Summary” section show just the balance due as of a specific date.
Important! If you have Agency Accounting, you’ll want to run reports under the “Agency Accounting” section so you can choose to include both Primary (parent) and Agency totals on the same report.
Note: Although the Receivable Journal Summary is under the “Family Accounting” section of reports, it does include all transactions, both private pay and agency related.
