Q&A Café: Prepaid Accounts Payable in SAP Business ByDesign
This café is specifically suited to those in finance working for organizations with significant volume of prepaid payables. ByDesign does not have an optimal way to amortize expense directly through accounts payable. You are likely using a manual process and struggling with some frustrations in side the system - those may be: difficulty in coding to a prepaid balance sheet account when a purchase order is involved, or using the Open Item Management feature on the general ledger when a payable is involved. Instead we will look at a process using a Prepaid Supplier and monthly recurring invoices to allocate your prepaid. Anyone in accounting or accounts payable should consider attending!
