Account Payable (AP) module records company debts and liabilities that have been accrued but not paid and this debt gets listed as a current liability in the balance sheet.
AP module has four main purposes:
- Provide up-to-date creditors data to management.
- Ensure efficient and effective management of disbursements.
- Minimize unnecessary or premature expenditures.
- Review of supplier’s history and its current transactions status.
The AP module controls and manages supplier accounts in an efficient and accurate manner to control cash disbursement promptly and in user defined payment schedule. AP shows the whole payable situation in up to the minute and in precise details as to whom and what is owed. You can pay suppliers at any time, in any currency. Appropriate transactions entered elsewhere in the system automatically update supplier accounts.
User could post credit invoices manually to a supplier’s account or update from the Purchase Order module. Pay as many as invoices as you like with one cheque. In a user defined format generate aging, forecasting reports detailing the amounts owed.
Purchase Orders can create invoices in AP for received goods; Job Cost can apply payable data to specific work orders and functions; General Ledger can be updated with either detailed or summarized invoice or cheque data; and Bank Reconciliation can gather cheque from AP.
AP aging report is a good cash management tool that should be prepared periodically as it helps you plan the timing and amount of your cash requirement.
In essence, AP module provides complete, convenient payable management, resulting in more control of your business.
