Accounts Receivable process overview

Once an  (PDF file) Accounts Receivable Invoice Requisition Form is received by Accounts Receivable, the following will occur:

  • the invoice is entered into the financial system, detailing:
    • the goods or services provided to the client
    • the amount due
    • an invoice is generated with a unique invoice number
  • the invoice will be emailed to the client directly unless otherwise specified by the billing department.
  • upon creation of the invoice, the amount is credited to the billing department’s cost centre.
  • Accounts Receivable will follow up with the department and/or client to collect the outstanding funds if the invoice remains outstanding past TMU standard terms.

For invoices that remain outstanding beyond 365 days, the outstanding amount will be debited back from the department cost centre and the invoice may be sent to a collection agency. In such cases, we will give the affected department 20 days’ notice and work with the department for resolution.

If the collection agency is successful, the invoice amount will be credited back to the department, minus collection agency fees.

The billing process is undertaken by departments and differs depending on the amount you are billing a client for.
