The reports you need to do this are called Unpaid Invoices and Unpaid Bills. You can find them in the Reports section of the menu.

This is what the Unpaid Invoices report looks like:

It shows you all the outstanding client invoices (accounts receivable) at a certain point in time. In the above report, it is As Of 2017-01-16. Using the report you can not only find out how much is owed to you, but also how long it's been owed to you. Any invoice in the Current column is still in good standing as of the As Of date. The other columns represent invoices that are overdue by 1-30 days, 31-60 days, 61-90 days, and more than 90 days.

The Unpaid Bills report acts in the exact same fashion as the Unpaid Invoices report, except it displays outstanding supplier bills.
