How does FreshBooks calculate accounts receivable?
You may have noticed that the only value that is pre-populated on your balance sheet is the “Accounts Receivable from FreshBooks” field. That is the only value that FreshBooks has an accurate record of. That amount comes from how much you are owed from Unpaid invoices that have been sent to your customers.
The value displayed in that field is in your Base currency, but rest assured that unpaid multi-currency invoices are taken into consideration. FreshBooks uses the conversion rate from the day of the “Balance Sheet as of” date, or the closest available day, and adds up all the different currency invoices to one total accounts receivable amount.
The “Accounts receivable from FreshBooks” amount includes:
- The outstanding balance of any sent unpaid invoices (that includes, sent, viewed, disputed, declined, and failed status invoices)
- The outstanding balance of any partially paid invoice
The “Accounts receivable from FreshBooks” amount does not include:
- Draft invoices
- Paid invoices
- “Draft & Partial status invoices”
