What do accounts payable jobs entail?

The main function of an accounts payable professional is to make sure a company’s bills are paid on time. In addition, they’re responsible for prioritizing invoices according to payment terms, as well as verifying and reconciling amounts. In some cases, the accounts payable person is also in charge of accounts receivables. This includes sending invoices to customers, collecting payments and posting them, and dealing with issues with non-payment or payment disputes.

What are the job requirements?

To successfully work in accounts payable, you have to like numbers. Beyond that, you also need to have a good understanding of fundamental financial principles. Some other requirements that are important for employers looking to fill this kind of role include:

  • Strong organizational skills
  • Ability to work independently
  • Detail oriented with strong analytical and problem-solving skills
  • Knowledge of accounting software programs

While it’s also important for an accounts payable professional to have good communication skills – especially when it comes to talking with creditors and company leaders – this position is often more of a “behind-the-scenes” one.
