Accounts Receivable and Allowance for Doubtful Accounts


Trade accounts receivable are recorded at the invoiced amount and do not bear interest. The volatility of the industries that Connection Systems serves can cause certain of its customers to experience shortages of cash flows, which can impact their ability to make required payments. Connection Systems maintains allowances for doubtful accounts for estimated losses resulting from the inability of its customers to make required payments. Estimated allowances for doubtful accounts are reviewed periodically, taking into account the customer’s current payment history, the customer’s current financial statements and other information regarding the customer’s credit worthiness. If the financial condition of Connection Systems customers were to deteriorate, resulting in an impairment of their ability to make payments, additional allowances may be required. Account balances are charged off against the allowance when it is probable the receivable will not be recovered.
