Accounts Payable is what you, or your company, owe to vendors and suppliers. Accounts Receivable is what is owed to you by customers. A lot of companies use the term Net 30. That means an invoice, for AR, is due in 30 days. For AP, the vendor wants their money in 30 days. Both AR and AP are listed on the balance sheet. AR shows up under current assets. AP is a liability and shows up under current liabilities.
