Process Overview

    CLOSE, CONSOLIDATE, REPORT AND
    FILE

7
Current Challenges Within the Office of Finance
       Pressure to shorten the close process

       Translating local currencies of their subsidiaries into the base currency
        of the entire enterprise.

       Conversion from local accounting principles to US Generally Accepted
        Accounting Principles (GAAP).

       Elimination of intercompany transactions between subsidiaries

       The ability to produce meaningful, dynamic reports that can be used
        for making critical management decisions and financial analysis

       Establishing controls mandated by government agencies (for example,
        the Sarbanes-Oxley act, or ―SOX‖)

       Transmission of government reports in electronic format as
        mandated by the SEC and other agencies

Editor's Notes

  1. Hello. Welcome to the first installment of the Close Consolidate Report and File series. In today’s session we will discuss the “last mile” of the CCRF initiative—Financial Statement Reporting.
  2. After a quick introduction of the team, we’ll give an overview of what the CCRF is and how Financial Statement Reporting fits in. We’ll then have our partners at IBM give a demonstration of Cognos Financial Statement Reporting (FSR). Next, we’ll share potential next steps you may want to take move your company toward streamlining your Financial Reporting.We’ll wrap with a Q&A session that will address the questions not already covered interactively during the webinar.
  3. I’ll now hand the floor over to Gary Kantz so he can provide the context for today’s session with a quick overview of the close, consolidate report and file process. Gary?
