Commercial Receivables

A commercial receivable arises when a business – from as small as a sole proprietorship to as large as a multi-national corporation – takes out a loan. If the loan goes into default, the commercial debt collection process begins.

Commercial and business loans come from a variety of sources and can be secured and unsecured, depending on the purpose of the loan. There are also several government agencies – like the Small Business Administration – that back or guarantee certain types of loans.
