Course Description

The month-end accounts closing process is a crucial part. Closing the books each month is the process that sets the numbers in stone. It helps business owners in measuring progress towards goals. They are also essential for performing accurate cash flow projections for the future. Further, they help in making essential business decisions with more management-related information. 

However, the monthly close process can be time-consuming and labor-intensive. Tracking down information from many other departments, identifying errors and making corrections; and performing all of the other necessary tasks leads to issues like overtime, delayed reports, and frustrated stakeholders. Further, for companies with subsidiaries, the process is even more complex and challenging.

Organizations can take to accelerate the month-end close process.
