    Topic Background:

    Accounts payable and purchasing have undergone great changes. They account for between 30 and 70 percent of the money and financial commitments that flow out from companies. Regulators have realized that the information maintained by and transactions that pass through these two organizations should be monitored and analyzed to ensure appropriate behavior as well as to determine if fines, penalties or lawsuits are appropriate.

    At the federal level, 1099 and 1042-S reporting as well as compliance with Office of Foreign Assests Control (OFAC), Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) and the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA)are just some of the issues that AP and purchasing must address. But, at the state level, increased Sales and Use Tax audits, Escheatment audits, Dead Beat Parent Reporting and Withholding on Payments to Vendors are all creating challenges for AP and purchasing.
