ABB Ltd Receivables

Receivables of ABB for past 10 years: annual, quarterly and twelve month trailing (TTM) including Receivables growth rates and interactive chart. Accounts receivable (AR) is the balance of money due to a firm for goods or services delivered or used but not yet paid for by customers. Accounts receivables are listed on the balance sheet as a current asset. AR is any amount of money owed by customers for purchases made on credit. When a company makes a sale, it records revenues and a corresponding balance in accounts receivable. When an invoice is paid, the accounts payable account is reduced and cash is received. Receivables should grow in-line with revenue over time, if they are growing much faster, a company might be booking revenue too aggressively.
