What is an accounts receivable report grouped by dynamic aging?

Old accounts receivable reports are considered operational reports and are used by accountants to determine past due balances from clients. Some of the key features of this type of report is that it dynamically calculates and displays outstanding amounts by querying for transactions within date ranges such as 0-30 days, 31-60 days, and so on. Because it is dynamic, the user does not need to run any old processes in their ERP system first. Below you will find an example of this type of report.
