Where does a bad debt expense go in a profit and loss statement by?

It depends on exactly how that company is writing its books. Normally, it would go under Accounts Receivable. But the company could have a separate Bad Debts account. Bad Debts would be credited. Accounts Receivables would be debited. Either way, it is a loss for the company.
