Basic Concepts in Oracle AP - Part1

Oracle 11i Financials - AP
The Payables module in Oracle Applications allows you to pay your suppliers for merchandise and services and enables you to manage your procurement cycle. This module consists of two integrated workbenches, Invoice and Payment. This ReferencePoint describes Accounts Payable (AP) and explains how to manage payments to vendors and suppliers.

The Payables Workflow
Oracle Payables is integrated with Oracle Purchase and Oracle Cash Management. When you purchase goods or services from a supplier, an encumbrance is created. As soon as you receive the goods or services, the encumbrance becomes a liability that remains in your books until you pay for goods or services. Figure shows the integration of Oracle Payables, Oracle Purchase, and Oracle Cash Management:

Integration of Payables, Purchase, and Cash Management Oracle Purchase, similar to all other feeder systems, is also integrated with Oracle GL. You can transfer all accounting transactions generated and created in Oracle Payables to Oracle GL through GL_INTERFACE_TABLE. To integrate Payables with GL: 1. Run Payables Transfer from Oracle Payables to the General Ledger process. Using this process, you can transfer invoice and payment accounting to the GL_INTERFACE table.

2. Run the Journal Import program from Oracle GL to transfer the invoice and payment accounting from the GL_INTERFACE table to GL. This creates unposted journal entries in GL, which can be reviewed and finally posted. The posting process updates account balances.

How to Set Invoice Workbench
Invoice Workbench enables you to enter, adjust, modify, and review invoices and invoice batches that your customers have raised on you. You can integrate the Invoice and Payment workbenches through the Invoice Overview and Payment Overview windows. You can use either of these workbenches to review the information in the other workbench. The Setup options in Oracle allow you to manage the procurement cycle and save money for your organization. You can define the Payables system to: Pay suppliers on time Get maximum discounts on payments Prevent duplicate billing and invoicing Perform multiple matching of Invoice and Purchase Orders Avoid overdrafts on bank accounts Review information online to check the status of payments There are various options that you can set to work with the invoice feature in Oracle Payables. These include the options for suppliers, invoices, and distribution sets.
