why A/R needs its own day

Accounts Receivable professionals play a significant role in how businesses operate by collecting on outstanding sales. Especially in today’s new business environment, the work of skilled, diligent A/R professionals, companies wouldn’t be able to collect and process the cash needed to make payroll and continue operations. America’s A/R pros deserve to be recognized for the crucial, and often, thankless, role they play in modern business.

National Accounts Receivable Appreciation Day is a celebration of the people, process, traditions and value of accounts receivable in today’s business world. This national day honors the teams and individuals who work tirelessly to collect on outstanding sales and make sure that the rest of the business world can continue making payroll, paying suppliers and serving customers.

How to Celebrate

Anyone who interacts with accounts receivable (A/R) professionals should go out of their way to make the day special.

Co-workers, Supervisors and Senior Executives should:

  • Bake a commemorative cake.
  • Order coffee or send flowers to A/R teammates while they work from home.
  • Just call to say thank you.
  • Shower A/R staff with the recognition and validation they don’t typically receive.

Debtors should:

  • Promptly pay on outstanding bills and invoices and consider including a personal note of thanks to the A/R representative.
  • Tipping is discouraged.
  • If no balance on National Accounts Receivable Day, send a note or gift to the A/R representative for their role in facilitating a zero balance.

Other ideas:

  • Play a virtual game of “Pin the Invoice on the Ledger”
  • Host a collection contest for all revenue and accounting employees.
  • Send surprise gifts to early payers.
