This finance dashboard example and monitors financial KPIs including accounts receivable (AR), accounts payable (AP), cash flow, liabilities, and more.

The Current Accounts Receivable and Accounts Payable metric displays the current money owed to your business as well as the amount your business owes creditors. This key accounting metric can help business owners, bookkeepers, and accountants track the amount of income waiting to be collected and the expenses that have not yet been paid. This metric allows businesses to calculate the average debtor and creditor days, which will show how long it takes on average for debtors to pay a business and how long a business takes to pay its creditors.
