How Overpayments Occur

Most Purchasing, Receiving and Accounts Payable departments within an organization are equipped with sophisticated computer systems, productive and lean staffs and challenging deadline commitments. Most organizations do not have specialists dedicated to identifying and recovering overpayments to suppliers and taxing authorities. OPR’s team of specialists is committed to the recovery of lost revenue to your organization.

Overpayments are created internally as well as externally. To name a few examples, overpayments are due to: complicated and multiple supplier invoices, system control weaknesses, and ever-changing tax laws from state-to-state. As a result, vendors may be paid unintentionally, or paid on multiple occasions for the same invoice, or paid tax for non-taxable items. Additionally, the misunderstanding of a purchased item’s use or the misinterpretation of a tax code, or both, can result in an overpayment.

The good news is overpayment errors can be identified and recovered and OPR welcomes the opportunity to help provide your organization with substantial recoveries.
