Accounts payable managers handle all the bills and invoices that a company must pay. As such, they must have very strong math and accounting skills. A small mistake can end up costing the company thousands of dollars, so great attention to detail is also essential. In addition, accounts payable managers must be organized and must have excellent computer skills --particularly with Excel and other accounting software.
