The Accounts Payable module for Sage 500 ERP helps you save time, reduce administrative costs, and gain better control over your business processes by automating a wide range of vendor-related tasks
With a variety of advanced customization options, the Accounts Payable module lets you specify vendor management procedures and processes to suit the needs of your organization. The system makes it simple to enter a default general ledger account to the vendor class, or to a batch, and track expenses by department or location. You can also fulfill specific vendor requirements quickly and easily by assigning a default item, 1099 information, payment terms, and tax codes to each vendor. For vendors that are also customers (in the Sage 500 ERP Accounts Receivable module), the Accounts Payable module can automatically calculate the appropriate payment amount and net of money owed to you by the same entity. This ensures that payments are made to trading partners only when the net balance requires it.
In addition to providing maximum flexibility, the system gives you fast, easy access to the information you need for day-to-day tasks and period-end processing, including vendor statistics, aging, and transaction information.
Accounts Payable simplifies voucher entry by automatically calculating sales taxes, discounts and due dates, as well as by defaulting general ledger accounts, payment terms, and 1099 information. Because you can set up recurring vouchers, you’ll save time and maximize productivity by eliminating duplicate work each month. Simplified period-end processing can further improve your productivity.
