What is Accounts Payable?

Accounts payable is the running tally of the outstanding bills a company owes for goods or services. An accounting term for money a business owes, accounts payable is the effective opposite of accounts receivable, which is a term for money others owe your business. These debts, or payables, are treated as liabilities in your business's accounting system.

The Future of Accounts Payable

The future of accounts payable will include growing reliance on mobile solutions, automation and digital authorization technologies.

Mobile solutions accelerate and often improve communication. Accounts payable departments using mobile solutions can access data, seek approvals, and process work in record time, all without burdening in-house accounting resources with untenable workloads or hours.

Automation won’t just create efficiency wins for organizations, but it will also reduce reliance on paper, creating greener accounts payable processes. Even payments, which can be processed through digital channels via an increasing number of platforms, will ditch paper and become more automatic in nature.

Going digital with accounts payable functions will likely generate cost savings, but businesses of all sizes must ensure savings are not lost to future security breaches. Working with reliable vendors and third-party software is one way to mitigate security risks, but accounts payable staff must also work closely with internal tech resources to create secure procedures for any AP function that goes digital.

The Basics of Accounts Payable

The steps that your business undertakes when it needs to pay someone might vary, but most setups look something like this.

  1. Receive the invoice from the vendor. It may have a purchase order number associated with it, may be due now or in the future, and may be mailed with an Andes mint, if the Olive Garden has been helping you out. Life tip: If you ask, they’ll give you a gazillion of those mints.
  2. Reconcile the invoice with your internal purchase order system. If the invoice came pre-coded, you can simply match it up to the internal purchase order number that you’ve generated. If not, you’ll have to hunt down the order to match everything up.
  3. Enter the invoice into your accounting system, tied to the correct purchase order. I would put more information here if that wasn’t so self-explanatory. Instead, here’s a short story about a fish. Marvin saw a shark swimming his way. “How magnificent this world of ours is,” he thought. The end.
  4. Pay the invoice using your method of choice.

If we’re going to cut back on manual work, these are the biggest chunks we can cut into.
