Paid bills pending approval

There may be times when a bill pending approval has already been paid. The process of approving bills and the process of scheduling bills are independent of one another. In most instances, a paid bill still requiring approval is due to a user in the Administrator role, which has the added permission to pay unapproved bills, paying a bill before it has been approved. Doing so does not remove the approval requirement, assigned approvers will still need to approve the bill.

Things to know

  • If a bill is scheduled for payment or is paid already, it will remain on the Approver's Approve list until it is approved, denied, or until it is removed from the Approvers' assignment
  • A payment will go out if an Approver is added after the payment is scheduled since it is the payable (bill) that goes through the approval process, not the payment
  • Approvals are an internal process and will not stop a payment that is scheduled to be processed
