Description :

The year-end tasks in accounts payable are critical to accurate financial statements for any organization. Yet, often, they are a last minute affair, and proper attention is not accorded the tasks. This course is designed to highlight the issues both directly related to the year-end close and present information the professional can use to implement a smoother close in accounts payable. Industry expert Mary Schaeffer shows auditors, controllers, and managers where year-end problems are likely to occur, how to prevent those problems moving forward. She also offers some straightforward best-practice advice on how to run the close in accounts payable as smoothly as possible.
