Fast Closing, Financial Consolidation, and Lease Accounting with Board

Speed up closing and consolidation activities while preserving accuracy and full adherence to compliance requirements

Financial closing, financial consolidation, and other general accounting activities require high levels of manual, repetitive work and the collation of data from a multitude of spreadsheets and data sources. Additionally, the above activities must meet strict requirements in terms of compliance to corporate internal control systems.

Board’s financial closing software, financial consolidation software, and lease accounting software provides a transformational alternative, saving time through the automation of repetitive activities, creating visibility and auditability across the entire process, and freeing up team members to dedicate time to more strategic activities.

Board for Financial Closing

Streamline your financial closing process with the power of automation and transparency.

Kick off

Acknowledge unadjusted trial balances, including all subledger accounts within the general ledger, at a certain point in time, verifying that the sum of all debits equals the sum of all credits

Reconciliations

Perform periodical reconciliations of subledgers such as cash accounts, bank accounts, accounts receivables, accounts payables, personnel debits/credits, and taxation debits/credits against internal and external reports and records

Adjustments and cut off registrations

Produce estimates aimed at quantifying accruals, currency adjustments, and invoices to be received/issued. Accomplish cut off registrations with regards to inventory valuation, fixed asset dynamics, and various provisioning schemes

Final trial balance

Once all reconciliations, adjustments, and cut off registrations are posted, generate a final trial balance
