A Must Read for All Finance Professionals Wanting to Make Consolidation Effortless

No matter what size business you are, if you have more than one entity you will need to create consolidated accounts. You’ll also want to use that consolidated information to make informed decisions and plans.

Until recently, rather than invest in expensive consolidation software, most finance leaders of mid-sized organisations chose to create consolidated reports using spreadsheets. Although this approach was error-prone and cumbersome, it was an economical solution. However, a new wave of affordable, Cloud-based accounting systems allows forward-thinking finance leaders to automate consolidation, get accurate data and take a really good look under the hood of their group accounts.
