Accounts payable and receivable is the core of payment and invoicing for any business. The main thing they do is track payments and send out invoices to ensure that they receive payment for the services they provide. It is the backbone of any business, because it ensures that they are receiving the income they are due and makes sure that the company's finances are accurately reported. Accounts payable is the money a company owes its vendors, while accounts receivable is the money that is owed to the company, typically by customers. When one company transacts with another on credit, one will record an entry to accounts payable on their books while the other records an entry to accounts receivable. Accounts receivable is a current asset account that keeps track of money that third parties owe to you. Again, these third parties can be banks, companies, or even people who borrowed money from you. One common example is the amount owed to you for goods sold or services your company provides to generate revenue.
