This structure is defenseless against an arrangement between Accounts payable staff and providers. Over some time providers construct a relationship with Accounts payable staff and this is abused. Models incorporate

Records payable staff often profit themselves of easy routes in posting, including preparing installments as diary passages, crediting bank and charging a business ledger, bypassing seller account and related controls including credit terms. This is done some of the time with pernicious expectations and in some cases for accommodation. In either regard, the organization loses significant data and income endures. Staff are likewise less worried about subjective data required for the executives bookkeeping and are centered fundamentally around preparing an installment. Explicit dangers in an SAP situation
