why A/R needs its own day

Accounts Receivable professionals play a significant role in how businesses operate by collecting on outstanding sales. Without 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:

  • Bring a commemorative cake.
  • Bring in coffee or show up with flowers for A/R teammates.
  • Just drop by 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 brief game of “Pin the Invoice on the Ledger”
  • Bash a piñata in the shape of the company’s largest outstanding debtor
  • Accounts Receivable vs. Accounts Payable tug-of-war (weather permitting).
What People Are Saying
“A/R professionals are the ones who help their employers get from order to cash and bring money in the door. I am pleased to support such a worthwhile celebration and to help A/R pros finally collect the outstanding balance of recognition and credit they so richly deserve.”

“We were shocked that such a day had not previously been established given how crucial the accounts receivable function is for modern business. As a company that’s solely focused on helping accounts receivable be more effective, we at Invoiced can think of no other function that is owed a greater debt of gratitude and appreciation.”
JARED KING
Co-Founder & CEO

“Accounts Receivable is one of the most valuable assets of a company and many times taken for granted. There are many folks who work extremely hard in this line of work that do not get noticed or appreciated. Hats off to everyone who works in AR and take this day to celebrate all of your accomplishments!”
