I have been asked to comment on the size of our bad debt reserve. Do you have any ideas or suggestions?

Answer: Yes, the idea behind creating a bad debt reserve is not to overstate the value of the accounts receivable asset. The goal is to create a reserve that mirrors the projected value of the asset less any uncollectable balances due.
