Applied Business Systems has a small number of sales on account but is mostly a cash business. Consequently, it uses the direct write-off method to account for uncollectible accounts. During 2016, Applied Business Systems earned $46,000 of cash revenue and $9,000 of revenue on account. Cash operating expenses were $32,100. After numerous attempts to collect a $325 account receivable from J.C. Mims, the account was determined to be uncollectible in 2017.
