this is waiting until a particular amount is deemed uncollectible then writing it off at that time.
What are two problems with the direct write off method?
1) overstates AR balance in periods prior to write off

When a factoring arrangement is made without recourse,
the buyer cant ask seller for more money if receivables prove to be uncollectible. Buyer assumes risk of debt
When a factoring arrangmenet involves a company selling AR with recourse,
the seller claims all risks of bad debs. To compensate, buyers charge lower factoring fees.
How are transfers of note receivables discounted?
