Statement Audit

Don't Allow Your Suppliers To Control Your Profits

SAS has developed a strategic approach to a supplier statement audit ensuring that a thorough and detailed review is performed to identify unrecognized supplier credits and identify system weaknesses. During an Accounts Payable Recovery Audit, we request statements from a client agreed-upon list of suppliers, diligently following up with unresponsive vendors to ensure compliance with our request. All statements are reviewed for open credits, allowing us to recover all available funds and expose patterns that could lead to additional recoveries.

Your Dedicated Team With A Proven Process

SAS historic compliance rate on statement audits is in excess of 95% for targeted suppliers.

  • Client data is “scrubbed” to eliminate duplicate suppliers and to ensure valid contact information
  • Client approved statement letters are emailed to all targeted suppliers
  • Statements received are captured in the SAS client portal
  • Statements are tracked from receipt through resolution
