Auditors across the world experience challenges regarding the consolidation process. The complex process, prone to constant error-checking and insecurities about number validations across the group and its subsidiaries, is often demanding and time-consuming. It only escalates the complexity, as the auditor separates financial statements from subsidiaries, mergers and acquisitions, foreign currency translations, and intercompany transactions. Of course, there is the element of strict compliance and governing regulations to think of too.
The increased pressure to identify risks in the consolidation process as early as possible is a constant in the audit. The reality is that outdated methods such as Excel and manual reporting are taking unnecessary time out of the auditor's calendar. And time is money.
STEP INTO 2022 WITH A FAST CLOSE AND INCREASED PROFITABILITY
There is a better use of an auditor's expertise, project management skills, and agile mindset elsewhere. For example, use these competencies to offer strategic advice to your current clients or pursue new clients for your practice. When you prepare clients' financial consolidation in a digital and streamlined format, you can decrease the time spent on the financial consolidation and increase profitability while avoiding the risk of common spreadsheet errors.
By future-proofing your auditing through automated consolidation, you can strive towards continuous improvement in accountancy. Additionally, it is a good idea to become digital before your clients. We need more front runners in this landscape to take the lead on simplifying processes and minimizing errors in consolidation.
New digital technology allows you to automate group consolidation – eliminating manual processes in Excel and building more costs in the audit team. Using one software to standardize and automate ensures everyone in your team uses the same methodology (well-prepared audit value) in the review or preparation of group consolidation.
