This is the world in which you hurt yourself if you could not manage accounts payable effectively. Why?
Well, firstly, invoicing is the process by which a bulk of customers and vendors are paid by a business. When the invoice comes in, someone must pay the tab. Then, the invoice is required processed and stored for appropriate folders and referring later.
Secondly, the Account Payable notices you to take charge of paying the business’s bills on a time basis. This practice could help to maintain the business strong credit as well as a long-term partnership.
Thirdly, storing invoices in order and you can easily sort out which invoices are on the due date. As a result, you not only pay invoices on time but also pay properly.
Fourthly, account payable management enables business owners to manage healthier cashflow. From that point, they could decide whether to pay on cash or credit in a period in order to extend the cash availability.

Fifthly, fraud, and threads on the payment process could be avoided by an arranged and organized account payable management.
Finally, if you are not clear on who or what your business owed, you cannot ensure the business's financial situation. Compounding that, if you become famous for sloppy, haphazard AP practice, you are building a not as favorable reputation.
So, after all, the result of working on numerous processes is to have a complete and accurate financial report. To perform a healthy business, it is necessary for you to record and deal with AP properly and efficiently. If there is a double entry of a single expense or omission, the report will not show a correct amount, and loss will be enormous according to the invoice figure.
