How to Create an AP Bill in Acumatica

Vendor Payment Applications per Bill Line in Acumatica 2019 R2

Highlighted Features

Vendor Prepayments

Prepay vendors in advance and then apply these payments to invoices once they’ve been received. Acumatica allows you to track your total prepayments separate from your accounts payable balance.

Prepaid Expense Recognition

AP Expenses can be deferred by line item. This way you can recognize expenses in the correct financial period. Acumatica considers prepaid expense asset and expense accounts separately and then recognizes the entire expense once the recognition process is run.

Use, VAT, and Withholding Tax Support

Acumatica automatically calculates use and VAT taxes and generates reports for tax filing. Calculation of taxes can be defined based on the vendor associated tax zone. Users can override the taxes when entering the AP bills for special circumstances. Additionally, withholding tax calculations are supported.

Additional Features

Payment Approval Process

Enable payment approval process to so that the boss can prioritize or delay payments. Once approved, invoices can be included in a check run. This offers an optional step to ensure the boss can delegate cutting checks but can still have a level of cash and vendor control. Acumatica supports AP Bill entry approvals as well.

Multiple AP Accounts in GL

Unlike many other software systems, Acumatica gives you the flexibility to have multiple AP liability accounts on your books. The vendor can be assigned a different Accounts Payable GL Account, and with the right security you can even override when entering the bill.

Multiple Currencies Support

You can work with vendors that send invoices in foreign currencies. Acumatica can maintain separate balances for different currencies and can be scheduled to look up and apply different currency rates on a regular automatic basis. Currency Triangulation and the gain and losses are automatically calculated.

Recurring AP Documents

You can schedule the creation of recurring bills to reduce time and data entry. Define the frequency of the bill and even the duration or number of times.

Vendor Refunds

Acumatica allows you to receive vendor refunds. The Vendor Refund document will debit a cash account and debit an AP Account. You can apply a refund towards a Debit Adjustment or Prepayment document.

AP Aging Reports

Acumatica’s aging reports gives you incredible flexibility to display aging in different periods or highlight past due vendors.

1099 Reporting

Tracking Vendor 1099 information for each vendor has never been easier. Each vendor has a 1099 box that links back to an expense account. When it is time to run 1099 reporting, Acumatica will track payments against each vendor and their corresponding 1099 type.

Vendor Security

Acumatica’s row level security goes beyond traditional software security. If enabled, you can define which users or group roles can see which vendors to prevent access to vendors with sensitive information.

Audit Trail

Acumatica’s up to the field level auditing system allows you to get full details by transaction about any changes that have been made right down to the field level. This allows management to focus on the employees that need training or track down a potential mistake.

“We decided to move to Acumatica ERP in Jan 2015.  Our partner is Cloud 9 ERP Solutions and we have been very happy with them. They have walked us through the implementation process, dug in and found solutions when we needed to do something a little differently and gone to bat for us when we needed help. Overall, we couldn’t be happier with our move to Acumatica and working with Cloud 9 ERP Solutions.”
