Frequently asked questions
Without automating financial activities, consolidations can be a drain on time to manually manage complexities in a multi-location organization, such as decentralized payables, inter-entity transactions, or multiple currencies. Tracking hundreds, perhaps thousands, of inter-company transactions using spreadsheets is error-prone and time-consuming—taking days or weeks to consolidate. Sage Intacct Global Consolidations accelerated consolidations by:
- Automating inter-company eliminations
- Automating currency conversions and revaluations
- Complying with ASC 830/FAS-52 multi-currency consolidation, creating cumulative translation adjustments (CTAs)
After setting up your entities’ books, running the consolidations processes is easy. Simply select the books to consolidate and period range and click the consolidate button. You can even set up a recurring schedule of how often you want to consolidate so the process can run in the background.
This comprehensive automation translates to getting your consolidated financial reports in a fraction of the time it takes with manual consolidations processes, leading to reduced close time and improved accuracy. Every stakeholder gets the right view of performance with streamlined financial management and reporting.
Here are just a few examples of how organizations achieved greater efficiency and visibility.
- Jumpstart, a venture development nonprofit, managed consolidations across complex multi-entity operations to more than double the speed of planning cycles and increased budget accuracy by 90%.
