Disbursements are a key component to the control structure in an organization. However, disbursements can come with many risks due to the large numbers of transactions, different ways to make payments (checks and wires) and changes that continually occur. This session presents strategies that business officials have used to improve accounting practices, strengthen internal controls, and document procedures. Some topics we will cover include: Duplicate payments, audit issues, wire transfers and changes in accounts.
