Understanding and handling payment issues

A financial organization, or an organization involved in any business for that matter, faces the prospect of receiving duplicate, fraudulent or late payments. These are the typical payment issues an organization is likely to face at some point of time in its business.

Payment issues are something almost no organization is likely to be free from. Duplicate invoice payments, just one of the payment issues an organization is likely to face, account for losses of something like $100 million over a three-year period just for medium sized organizations. The amount is likely to be several times higher for large companies and those in the public sector, which most likely deal with billions of dollars in transactions.

Payment issues have their implications

The consequence of payment issues, be they duplicate, fraudulent or late payments, is whopping. It is likely to lead to business losses, because late payments, for instance, hinder investment into other productive activities by businesses. Although there are a number of sources at which payment issues can happen; it usually takes an organization quite a while to detect any payment issue, which could be duplicate, fraudulent or late payments. It also takes herculean efforts at times to get to the bottom of the payment issues.

Payment issues can happen due to a number of reasons

There is any number of reasons for which payment issues could arise. Manual data entry and processing, possible overlooking of characters while entering Accounts Payable (AP) or by Automated Clearinghouses (ACH) processors, oversights by manual checks and overlapping or duplication of payments while making payments from varied sources are just some of the reasons for which payment issues can occur with businesses.

Although the Sarbanes Oxley (SOX) Act has put in a number of checks and balances into the payment aspect of corporations; there are still a good number of loopholes that need to be e plugged if payment issues have to be addressed. How do organizations, especially those in finance, mitigate payment issues? What steps do they need to take to understand the regulations set out by the SOX Act, or take their own measures to prevent payment issues arising out of duplicate, fraudulent or late payments?

Learn the aspects of payment issues at a learning session
