receivables portfolio / inventory of receivables


Explanation:
The expansion of the service business resulted in the accumulation of [an inventory of] receivables.

Zahn, Bank- & Börsenwesen, gives "receivables portfolio", "sales (debtors') ledger" and "inventory of receivables" for Forderungsbestand, also (im Kreditgeschäft) "loan book" or "loan portfolio". See what fits best into your context.

Forderungen fpl
(com) debt claims
(ReW) accounts receivables
Also:
– customers' accounts
– debt outstanding
– debts receivable
– outstanding accounts
– receivables
– trade debtors

accounts receivable


Explanation:
While Zahn does list "Forderungsbestände" as accounts portfolio, this is probably more a GB formulation and not very usual. Internationally "accounts receivable" is the much more usual and easily understandable term.

If you look at Google for "accounts portfolio" you will se that this term is used in banking, and therefore has less to do with debts (Forderungen) than with just the portfolio of the account as a whole.

Google "accounts receivable" supplies the sites that correspond to your context. with
