Financial year-end

Manual processes can lead to error-prone data analysis…

If you’ve ever been in the midst of the festive celebrations and are suddenly hit with dread of an upcoming, cumbersome, financial year-end close, you’re not alone. Not only do you have to complete the usual processes involved with a month-end close, but you have the additional tasks of working back through each month to make any needed adjustments, preparing tax reporting, and planning for the next year. Getting the job done requires a real, concerted team effort. Sometimes you might need to involve IT or external consultants to help pull reports. This can take more time and result in errors due to misunderstanding or miscommunication.

This adds up to greater productivity, less stress and more accurate data to drive strategic insights and identify efficiencies.
