Accounts Receivable

Collection Processes


Accounts Receivable (AR) utilizes our standard processes and Collection Tools when collecting on invoices entered into the Integrated System by a Billing Department.

The standard process for collecting invoices includes:

  • Issuing the first invoice within one business day from the Billing Department entry;
  • Sending a collection letter at 15 days past due;
  • Contacting the customer if the amount is over $1,000.00
  • Sending a collection letter at 30 days past due;
  • Contacting the customer to prompt payment;
  • Sending a Final Demand collection letter at 45 days past due;
  • Entering the debt in the Set-Off Debt Collection (SODC) program at 60 days past due; and
  • Assigning the debt to a collection agency if the amount is over $200.00 at the discretion of the AR Manager or at 120 days past due.

Additional collection efforts are utilized as needed, including additional customer phone calls and faxing delinquent invoices.
