The difference between Accounts Receivable and Accounts Payable
Accounts receivable is money your business is owed from your customers. These can also be called current assets.
The accounts payable are the monies owed to your suppliers, ie. The bills you need to pay for buying raw materials or services. These are referred to as current liabilities.
Accounts receivable creates cash flowing in, whereas accounts payable creates cash outflow. Knowing your cashflow position is important for making investment and financial decisions, and to decide what bills need to be paid and when.
Accounts Receivable System
There are many ways to handle the accounts receivable system:
Some businesses invoice from a different package and load a monthly figure to their system for reporting purposes.
Other businesses invoice through their accounting package such as Xero. This method can also be achieved by using the software’s mobile app. This is great for trades as they can accept payment on the spot.
It is essential to have your contact details etc. on your invoices and statements. That way, if your customer has a query that needs to be addressed, they can contact you as quickly as possible, ensuring faster payment.
Once your bank account has been reconciled, you will know at a glance how much is owed to you and what is overdue.
Most accounting software allows for reminder invoices to be sent automatically. This is helpful and even better if you are up to date with your reconciliations. If you are not, then you will be sending out reminders which are not required.
Sheils Bookkeeping Service can streamline all of this for you.
