Bad debts reduce the accounts receivables. It is a loss for the company to incur bad debs. Therefore it is important to evaluate customers' creditworthiness before offering credit sales. Also debt collectors need to put more effort to reduce bad debts.

Debt recovery is all about the effort on debt collection. You need to follow up the debtors as frequently as possible.

Cash is the king for any business. If your debtors convert into money as expected, it may lead to a total business failure.
