AP Automation Factsheet

#Accounts Payable

What is Accounts Payable?

Accounts payable is the current liability account in which a company records the amounts it owes to suppliers or vendors for goods or services that it received.

Accounts Payable vs. Accounts Receivable

Accounts receivable and accounts payable are opposites. Accounts payable is the money a company owes its vendors, while accounts receivable is the money that is owed to the company, typically by customers.

What is an Accounts Payable Process?

The full cycle of the accounts payable process includes the following: approving invoices, matching invoices and vendor records, issuing payments to vendors or suppliers, and recording all payments.

How can AP Process be automated/improved?

The more invoices a company has to process and the more manual that process is, the higher the average is to process an invoice. Conversely, the more automated a company’s AP process is, the lower the cost is to process invoices.
