Job Description for Accounts Receivable Manager

Accounts receivable (AR) managers are responsible for overseeing the part of a company that deals with money owed to the business. AR managers must manage and coordinate billing and credit related activities such as sending invoices, determining customer credit worthiness and the amount of credit to be extended, attempting to collect on unpaid debts, updating billing records and handling most billing disputes. Some employers may also require that they be responsible for handling commissions and reporting sales tax as well. AR managers usually oversee a team, which may consist of accountants, collectors, analysts, clerks and/or credit professionals. This often varies based on the size of the company. For example, an AR manager at a small company may just oversee a few AR clerks, while a manager at a larger company may oversee a team of ten or more specialists. Regardless of the company’s size and amount of staff, AR managers are usually responsible for hiring, training and evaluating the AR staff.
