Duplicate Payments Recovery Audit

Duplicate Payments Recovery Audit

Accounts Payable inaccuracies inevitably occur due to a variety of reasons. These include human error, system changes, staff turnover or even just the sheer volume of invoices being processed. Most organizations have now introduced intelligent Accounts Payable software systems to prevent duplicate or incorrect payments occurring. Some even perform in-house reviews of their Accounts Payable data to check for these errors. However, this will only go so far.
