The Ultimate Guide to Account Reconciliations

Achieving world-class account reconciliation processes with financial transformation

The reconciliation process is a critical first step in the financial close and sets the foundation for period end success. However, due to its impact on all subsequent close activities, many find reconciliations to be an extremely stressful process that results in using more resources than ‘planned’ for completion.

In a perfect world, the risk of balance sheet mistakes, restatements or month-end close numbers you aren’t confident in would not exist. But, we’re all human, and we don’t live in a perfect world. An efficient and effective reconciliation process is not impossible though. Organizations that establish a strong System of Financial Controls within the finance department are successfully achieving both efficiency and effectiveness throughout their close processes.
