Accounts Receivable Management

Within a credit granting business, accounts receivable management (ARM) refers to policies and procedures for a company’s disposition of accounts receivable — or money owed on credit accounts — including measurements, aging, charge-offs, debt collection, and debt sales.

Lastly, time away from home has become less attractive. I like being at home. Shorter trips are better for me, and I hear the same from many of my colleagues.


Obama, Republicans, in Legislative Tug-of-War Over Over CFPB Reform

We can expect to hear more rhetoric from both sides in the ramp-up to the 2016 presidential elections. Democrats will want to focus the conversation on consumer protections — from reforms in debt collection to reforms in lending (specifically, yesterday’s story about payday lending). Republicans will focus largely on what they see as a regulatory body with no supervision, and will likely frame the conversation in terms of a need for smaller government.

Payday Loan

Is This the Beginning of the End for Payday Loan Operations?

The proposals under consideration would include two ways that lenders could extend short-term loans without causing borrowers to become trapped in debt.
