Guide: 9 steps. The Reconciliation of Intra-Group Transactions



We recommend that you set up a change management plan to make the project a success, with emphasis on the internal promotion of the project, so as encourage the entities to want the product.

Step 1:
Announcement to the entities: inform the entities about the project, the challenges it addresses and the expected benefits. You also need to make sure that you have the commitment and support of top management. Otherwise, the project is likely to fail.

Step 2: 
Send a question list to the entities to gather for each entity or reporting unit the information necessary to build the conversion tables and the source files structures



Step 3: 
Technical Installation of the interco reconciliation software

Step 4: 
Training: administrator + key users at HQ

Step 5: 
Process the information sent by the entities

• Creation of the users, the structures, interco rules ...
• Creation of the conversion tables and structures of the import files
• In a large group, it might be useful to set up a workshop with a selection of key users (3 key users or so) at the reporting units to test and adapt the user manual.

Step 6: 
Create the documentation and schedule the end-user training sessions

• Set up the training collateral + the user guide specific to your group
• Set up specific training exercises
• End-user training

Step 7 : 
Real-life test using the data of an intermediate closingg

Step 8 : 
Analysis of the comments received from the subsidiaries so as to improve the process. Draft a FAQ to improve forthcoming closing. And, if required, update the training manual or instructions manual. Send a report to the subsidiaries and the management of the group.

Step 9 : 
Go Live
