Aging Schedule

A table arranging accounts receivable according to the days until due or days past due. For example, an aging schedule may list accounts receivable that are less than 30 days old, less than 45 days old, and/or more than 90 days old. An aging schedule helps a company determine which of its customers are paying on time and may also be useful in the estimation of cash flow.
