English term or phrase:sentence comprehension
AAA company filed this action against franchisee to collect debt owing for purchases of supplies and services, and for past due license and sales promotion fees.
(Comment: I well understand it's not appropriate for a franchisee to use past due license in business, but why is it not allowed to collect money for the supplies and services? --for he franchisee has to buy all materials and approved products from AAA)
'to collect debt' and 'to collect money' have different meaning, I think you are confused by the word 'debt'.

FYI: Some licenses can be renewed period by period. And for business reason, you can continue to use the past-due license for a limited period of time before your renewal.
You can only renew a license within four months of the due date.
If your license has lapsed for more than five months, you will not be able to renew on-line. You will need to reinstate. To reinstate, go to the forms section and download a ‘Reinstatement Application' for your type of license (either individual real estate license, real estate firm license, or appraiser classification).
Explanation: There is no such thing as ‘pass due license’, you either operate with a license or without a license; nevertheless, you could be operating with a license that has not been paid for (pass due license fee).
The whole sentence boils down to "AAA company filed this action against franchisee to collect debt."
the rest is just what 'debt' consist of.
