The Accounts receivable – bad debts reserve register is created to calculate the reserve amount. This reserve is used later to settle unrecoverable debt. The register complies with the totals of the Accounts receivable - inventory register and reflects the remaining debt.

The remaining reserve for the previous period is taken in respect of the Accounts receivable - reserve movement register for the previous period (if not available, it is regarded as equal to zero). The difference between the calculated reserve for the current period and the remainder of the previous period is spread across the unrealized revenues or the unrealized expenses account, depending on the signifier.
