Duplicate Payments

The Exponential Impact

Duplicate payments occur when a company pays the same invoice twice. In today’s A/P environment, duplicate payments also include invoice-to-pcard, pcard-to-pcard, and invoice-to-T&E transactions as accounts payable organizations move payment to these more cost-effective, efficient methods.


The Institute of Internal Auditors estimates an average of .1% of payments are duplicate payments. This equates to an estimated $1,000,000 in duplicate payments for every $1B in spend. What does this mean to your company?

If your company’s Profit Margin is: Every $100,000 prevented or recovered equals:
1% $10,000,000 in sales
3% $3,333,333 in sales
5% $2,000,000 in sales
