Define Age Ranges for Doubtful Debt Allowance

This document explains how to define when unpaid customer invoices should be included in the routine for creating write-offs; that is, allowances for doubtful debts.


Age ranges are defined, comprising one or several periods each.

Use the age ranges in 'Doubtful Account. Define Depreciation Percentage' (ARS065), where percentages for the write-offs are defined per age range.

The ranges are saved in the parameter file (CSYTAB).

Before you start

Follow These Steps

  1. Start 'Doubtful Account. Define Age Range' (ARS060/B).

  2. Enter a three-position numeric code or identity for the age range. Press New.

  3. On the E panel, enter a description and a name.

  4. Enter a period interval in the 'From number of periods' and 'To number of periods' fields to determine the number of periods which should have passed from due date to the date when the allowance is made. Press Enter.

    Note that the age ranges can overlap, since they will be used in different combinations in (ARS065).
