Consolidation advisory



CONSOLIDATION MANUAL
TO ENHANCE THE RELIABILITY OF YOUR CONSOLIDATION PROCESS

A consolidation manual connects the consolidation team at head office with the subsidiaries. It’s an indispensable communication aide which provides many benefits:

  • As a communication tool, it facilitates the integration of new entities in the group 
  • It unifies and standardises data uploads to ensure better-quality information 
  • It creates a common language: it defines all financial concepts, accounting ratios, etc. used by the group (which may have different names depending on local standards or the country). 
  • It defines the roles and responsibilities of each person in the consolidation process: who is responsible for forwarding information in each entity? Who validates it? What is the scope of activity of the parent company’s consolidation department? 
  • It details the consolidation schedule: deadline for intercompany reconciliation, deadline to forward subsidiary information, audit periods, etc. 
  • It secures processes, even during the prolonged absence or departure of key personnel
