Aging Definition

Aging refers to the number of days since an invoice was issued to a customer.

Agining Extended Definition

Aging is often associated with accounts receivable—the customers that owe money to the business for items they bought on credit. By using aging, business owners can see when they invoiced customers and how far past due their accounts receivable are.

Aging of accounts receivable can also be used to calculate how much money a business will most likely not receive from unpaid customer bills. This calculation is called an allowance for doubtful accounts.
