Small and growing businesses face greater (and more expensive) challenges in their payment processes than their larger counterparts. For example, they are more apt to be hit by fraud (both internal and external), more likely to make duplicate payments (which are rarely returned), and have a greater tendency to unintentionally run into IRS trouble.
In more than a few cases the occurrence of one of these problems could mean the difference between staying in business and not. But this does not have to be the case. Join nationally recognized accounts payable expert Mary S. Schaeffer and learn how to handle your AP function correctly so you can effectively meet these risks and create a financially healthier company.
During this Webcast Mary will discuss and provide advice on how to:
- Pay invoices efficiently (and only once);
- Implement standardization to reduce errors;
- Check for duplicate payments;
- Effectively gather the information needed for 1099 reporting;
- Identify petty scams that target small and growing businesses; and
- Deal with frauds that target small and growing businesses.
- Your organization generates fewer than $50 million in annual sales;
- Your organization has three or fewer employees in accounts payable; and/or
- Your accounts payable process is largely paper-based (although you may receive invoices by e-mail).
