How do you calculate the allowance for bad debt reserve using the percentage of accounts receivable method?

This method computes the estimated allowance for uncollectible accounts based on the amount of year-end accounts receivables. This amount will be the amount that will compute as the year-end allowance account balance. You will then be able to back into the current year expense (aka the recorded bad debt expense).
