View outstanding bills

You can view all outstanding bills you have with another Xero organisation if they have enabled this feature in their invoice settings. A link to the outstanding bills will appear on online invoices, credit notes or prepayments you receive (or emailed yourself a copy of).

Outstanding bills are also known as statements with open items.
