Create payments for billsLast updated on 09/14/2022

The payment process in Payables helps you track payments to remittance vendors. After you reconcile bills, you can create payments for bills individually or in bulk. Use the payment record to reconcile your bank statements and to manage your business’s overall spending.

Note: Consider paying for bills individually if you made a purchase from a vendor that you don’t do business with often. If you have multiple bills from the same vendor, you can add the bills to a statement and pay the outstanding statement balance.

    The bill record opens.
