Accounts Payable

Zumzum Financials Knowledge Base


    The Accounts Payable Report tabulates a list of purchase invoices owed by suppliers, by age since the invoice date. This report only shows you the current list of suppliers, with an open balance as of today’s date.  If you need to view the accounts Payable balances for suppliers at a historic date, then please use the Aged Payables Report.

    The report rows are grouped by Supplier Account and Transaction Type, with the report columns grouped by Age.  The summary values of the report show the unpaid amount of the transaction.  Contact your Salesforce Administrator to help you customise this report to suit your own needs.
