Accounts payable software and automation

Stay on top of your payments with accounts payable software and keep your suppliers on your side.

Getting smarter with accounts payable automation software

Work with suppliers or contractors? Accounts payable software can help you to track who you need to pay and when.

Regardless of what business you run, it’s almost certain you work with suppliers, contractors or employees who need to be paid.

You don’t want to waste time struggling to use an unintuitive solution and then get phone calls from your suppliers or employees to say they’ve been paid the incorrect amount or none at all. Instead, you must know who needs to be paid and when, and then have confidence in your accounting software.

Remember paying suppliers on time will strengthen your relationship with them and help you renegotiate how often you pay down the road.

 

 Why should your accounts payable be automated?

Increase business efficiencies

Automating accounts payable will help you improve the accuracy of financial information, save time on business processes and free up team members to work on other activities.

Taking this step is also useful if you want to avoid defaulting on suppliers.

How to find and calculate accounts payable

The best way to find and calculate accounts payable is to keep accurate financial records and track what you owe to suppliers.

If you’re using Sage Business Cloud Accounting:

  • Create or import suppliers
  • Enter the amount of money you owe suppliers
  • Review the Customer Balances - Days Outstanding Report

Improving your small business accounts payable

Modern accounting software is ideal for finding and calculating short-term debt.

For example, the Customer Balances - Days Outstanding Report inside of Sage Business Cloud Accounting reveals what you owe to suppliers at any point in time.
