net (noun, net, \ net \) accounts (noun, ac-counts, \ əˈkaʊnts \) receivable (adjective, re-ceiv-a-ble, \ rɪˈsiːvəbl \)
Definition: is an amount of money that a firm can reasonably expect to amass from accounts receivable by checking their asset accounts and comparing them to the credit balance sheet. The said amount can be calculated by using the formula: “accounts receivable” – “allowance for doubtful debts,” as the correlation between these two figures allows the organization to understand how much of the accounts receivable funds can be cashed in by the end of the current fiscal period.
