What Is Accounts Payable Intermediate Training?

Accounts Payable (A/P) is a core operation of any accounting system. Whilst it involves paying invoices, there is actually a lot more to it than that. An efficient and accurate AP system will save you time, money and resources. By gaining an in-depth understanding of how to manage your purchase ledger effectively, you will be better placed to minimise the overhead costs of your AP team and add value to the Finance department. At the end of this course delegates will be able to equip themselves with essential skills to lead your Accounts Payable team, maximise your time and add value to budgeting, cost control and cash flow.
