Notes Receivable

What is a Notes Receivable?

Notes receivable are amounts due to a business usually from their customers for supplies made to them on credit.

The difference between a notes receivable and an accounts receivable is that notes receivable are issued as a promissory note (a written note promising to pay principal plus interest at a specific date).

Notes receivable are often used when a customer wants to extend their credit terms on an overdue account.
