Fundamentals of Accounts Payable Mary Schaeffer 2014-01-25 Unless you are satisfied with an accounts payable function that is expensive, inefficient, makes lots of duplicate and improper payments, permits fraud and is continually in hot water with state and federal regulators, it is critical that the foundation of the accounts payable department be as strong and impenetrable as possible. This is not as simple as you might think. To create a solid foundation, best practices must be used and strong internal controls integrated throughout the function. For all that to happen, a good understanding of the fundamentals of the accounts payable function is required. That is the goal of this book and it is a lot more complicated than many realize. Now many professionals reading this book will already know some of what's included. After all, we all know how to pay bills. For starters, there's a right way and a wrong way to handle the functions related to paying invoices. What's more, the function is changing thanks to technology, new frauds and increased regulatory requirements. So, while some of the fundamentals have stayed the same for many years, a lot has changed. And, that's just the tip of the iceberg; there's a lot more to the accounts payable function than just paying bills (invoices).

Strong internal controls and segregation of duties should become a standard way of thinking rather than something required by law. Accounts Payable and Sarbanes-Oxley provides a comprehensive overview of the Act and lays out the necessary guidelines that affect accounts payable to ensure compliance in the accounts payable department.
