Audit & Account Reconciliation

Crucial for financial accuracy, yet ERP systems often fall short in this area. Many businesses face challenges with reconciling control accounts and stock balances.

With dedicated dashboarding reports, such as Goods Received Not Invoiced (GRNI) and stock reconciliation, swiftly identify reconciliation discrepancies.

Why it’s important

So why are these reconciliations often significantly off, causing concern at month-end?

Time Pressure

Audit and Reconciliation is a time consuming business.

So due to the pressure on time, some businesses ignore is until the auditors arrive, leading to questions such as:

But hang on – shouldn’t my ERP do all this automatically?

Automated Processing

Indeed, the modern ERP promises to provide in-balance General Ledgers as well as reconciliation programs, but they frequently fall short.

So how is everyone else solving this?

Money ...

There are many products that can assist with reconciliation, but most require your transactional data to be transferred to vendor specific databases before processing.

Because of complexity, cost and training required, these systems are typically only accessible to large multinationals.

... Time, ... or both!

For everyone else – it’s manual data dumps to Excel – late nights, and a great many cups of coffee.

I identified a discrepancy in our AP control account within the general ledger, stemming from disparities in the AP aging. I resolved this by generating a Fast Close report, which allowed me to pinpoint all GL postings related to this account and the corresponding vendors, swiftly resolving the issue.
