Account payable is the outstanding balance that we must pay to the third party or suppliers.
We pass the entries in account payable from two sides: purchase order and general ledger. Purchase order module will be posted after material order has been arrived in warehouse and combining with invoice plus related documents that have been approved by authorized person. General ledger normally from service entry where it must be attached by service agreement between company and third party.

Accounts Payable is a short term liability of an organization. It's a process by which a company buys goods and services on credit and is billed in the form of an invoice, which states the terms and conditions of the payment. Accounts Payable is recorded as a current liability in the balance sheet. All accounts paayble entries are to be coded under the right G/L accounts to have an accurate picture of the company's short term liability.
