Electronic receipt of invoices should be treated separately from transmission of approved invoices to accounts payable

One worthy objective is to receive bills from law firms in electronic format; a second objective, distinctly more complicated, is to convey the information about bills your have approved to your company’s accounts payable system. Be that system Oracle, SAP, or some other Enterprise Resource Program (ERP), the proper accounting treatment, not to mention the translation, transmission and reconciliation of invoices and payments, is often a frustrating quagmire.

Better to accomplish the first part of the process and continue with your traditional method of requesting payment of checks than to be bogged down trying to accomplish it electronically all at once.
