Bad Debt Recovery

Bad Debt Recovery

Partial or whole payment of a debt previously thought to be uncollectible. For example, if a credit card has been written off but then the credit card company receives a payment, this is considered bad debt recovery. This reduces a company's accounts receivable and generally increases income. Bad debt recovery may come from the receipt of a regular payment or from some other source, such as the sale of a loan's collateral.
