Running the Accounts Payable Period-End Process As part of your internal balancing procedures, you need to verify that your data is correct. You can run reports during period-end processing to do this. Use integrity reports to: • Ensure that accounts payable (AP) and accounts ledgers are in balance. • Identify any problems or inconsistencies in ledgers in a timely manner. Use “As Of” reports to: • View summary or detail information about AP. • Compare report totals with the AP trade account balance in the general ledger to identify any balancing problems. Upon completion of this lesson, you will be able to: • Understand accounts payable integrity reports. • Understand accounts payable “As Of” reports. • Understand Correcting A/P Out-of-Balance Conditions.
