Deloitte US have conducted a recent poll with a number of surprising findings. Close to 4, 000 accountancy and finance professionals participated in the poll entitled “Cleaning up inter-company accounting”.
When asked which issue posed the greatest challenge to their organisations implementation of inter-company accounting, the stand out response was that of software systems. This is because the selection of a suitable system can often be a difficult task to resolve.
The integrity of financial reporting is also a pressing issue for those organisations that have yet to adopt a holistic approach to group company accounting. Less than ten percent of participants believed that efficient systems are in place to handle their company’s inter-company accounting framework.
At accountsIQ we are happy to advise organisations in similar positions, as many of these issues can be solved through cloud accounting. Used by Deloitte in Australia, accountsIQ offers Multi-Group consolidation (and can handle any type of group structure including partial ownership), multi-currency accounting (currently there are 43 currencies in live use on the system) and enhanced business analytics for extended reporting and complex/personalised KPI’s.
