Job Description for Account Payable Associate
Accounts payable associates are responsible for all aspects of recording, processing, and reconciling accounts payable invoices, which is critical for a company to maintain accurate financial records. Accounts payable associates receive invoices from all departments within the organization and enter this information into the accounts payable records. If there is a discrepancy between invoice orders and deliveries, they contact the employee who placed the order - as well as the vendors, if necessary - and reconcile payment and delivery amounts. In some cases, they initiate payment on outstanding accounts once an invoice has been confirmed. If vendors have accounts questions, accounts payable associates are the initial contact point.
