We have a 10 business day turn-around to get checks out - 10 days from the time the invoice is turned into the business office and all documentation and coding is correct. We have a pay process that is never finished which consists of prepping, entering, printing and mailing so when you submit a late bill, remember the 10 business day rule.
If you have a special circumstance that requires a check before the 10 day deadline, please SPEAK with Stephanie, Amanda or Kimberly to let us know what your situation is and we will do our best to fit your request into the ongoing payment process. Please be aware that there are times that we do not have control over some things like, power outages, check signers out of the office and APSCN being down.
The first 2 days at the beginning of the month, accounts payable cannot be processed because the Bank Statement must be balanced and the period changed before any AP can be processed. The first 2 weeks in July AP cannot be processed until I have changed our Fiscal year over. The first 2 weeks in January AP cannot be processed until the W-2’s and 1099’s are balanced and printed and the Calendar year has been complete.
