Frequently Asked Questions

Accounts Payable (A/P) is an account within the general ledger that represents a company’s obligation to pay off a short-term debt to its creditors or suppliers.
Getting your purchase orders and subcontractor invoices paid on time is crucial for your construction business on many fronts. The most obvious is that it helps you avoid late fees or interest charges and missing out on supplier discounts. Additionally, it’s important to have proper retention/holdback tracking allocated across your GL and Jobs. Not doing so may result in the incorrect job costing. That’s why an Accounts Payable module with integration is the popular choice in construction accounting.
Better accounts payable management is vital for the smooth functioning process of your construction business. Here’s what your accounting team can do to improve your AP:
  • Keep track of your vendors and spending to properly managing your expenses
  • Calculate your retainage/holdback
  • Invest in an integrated system that connects your AP with Labor, Projects, Service Work Orders, POs, Subcontractors, and Equipment
