Accounts Payable/Accounts Receivable

Special Project

Policies and Procedures for Ensuring the 3-Way Match Occurs before Paying Invoice

Instructions:

Now that you are somewhat familiar with the payables function in QuickBooks, you no doubt realize that the software does not include a feature that ensures a three-way match is made/has been made prior to paying an invoice. It is largely a manual process. Choose a company whatever you wuld like.

You first job as the newly appointed head of the Accounts Payable department is to devise an internal process (i.e. “desk procedures”) to ensure that invoices are not paid unless and until a three-way match happens. You have access to company purchase orders and the shipping/receiving department forwards you the packing slips with the quantities verified (or discrepancy reports when the received quantities do not agree with purchase order quantities). Choose a company that you want.

The policies and procedures should be drafted as follows:

Responsibilities

The Controller/Chief Accountant is responsible for …..

The Head of Accounts Payable (you) is responsible for …..

Accounts Payable Personnel are responsible for ….

Shipping and Receiving is responsible for ….

Purchasing Department is responsible for ….
