Unpaid invoices are considered outstanding.
Invoices which remain unpaid for periods longer than their 'terms' indicate are considered overdue.
It is the aim of the Cash collection function of a business to collect Monies for all outstanding invoices before they become overdue and to mediate payment arrangements to ensure that invoiced debts do not become doubtful or bad.
