Youmans & Gardner, CPAs' professional accounts payable processing service helps business clients better manage their cash flow and keep current on payments to vendors. As one of the benefits available through our controller & internal accounting services we can process vendor bills at the client's or our office.
Overview - In-House Processing
If we process the vendors' bills at our office, the process begins with the delivery of the bills to one of our experienced staff accountants. Clients can elect to receive the bills in the mail at their office and then forward them to us or we can obtain a post office box where the bills will be mailed and that we check every business day. After we receive your bills we will enter them into our in-house accounting software, coding them to the correct general ledger accounts, entering due dates, and any discount dates, if applicable. Periodically, we will prepare a list of bills with upcoming due dates and present them for approval to pay. We can fax, email, make the list available for pick-up, or post it to a NetClient portal. Once we receive approval indicating which bills should be paid, we prepare the payments and either sign the checks with an image of your signature or make them available for signing.
Using Remote Payment Authorization through a NetClient portal allows online review of the list of bills needing payment and marking of each invoice that is being approved to pay. The approved list is transferred back to our in-house software where we can prepare the payments. In addition, we can post check stub images and reports to the portal.
Overview - Client's Office Processing
Similar procedures would be performed if our accounts payable services were requested at the client's office. Of course, vendor bills would not have to be delivered and bill authorization and check signing could occur while our staff accountant is on-site.
