Why is accounts receivable an asset?

You don t have or own money that you are going to receive some time in the future. I don t get it.

    It certainly isn't a liability.

    Accounts receivable are amounts which are owed to a business by its customers for goods and services supplied to them on credit terms. The money is owed to the business so it is an asset.

    They are receivables, not money lent to someone that you hope they will pay you back.
