Get daily or more frequent updates on intercompany trade. Reports show differences between companies. Drill down to accounts and transactions to match transactions and identify the root causes of differences and errors. This means that intercompany differences can be identified and corrected in the respective ERP system(s) before entering the busy closing process.
Subsidiary ownership is registered once and allows for changes to be entered as they occur. Transactions for depreciation and elimination are generated for group reporting.
Manual adjustments can be managed using voucher templates. Voucher templates are a set of transactions that can be reused on a periodic basis, where you can adjust companies, accounts, amounts and counterparts, if relevant.
Preview journal transactions from manual adjustments and subsidiary ownership. Update status to keep track of progress on the overall process, to meet the closing deadline.

Intercompany differences and transaction matching
Automatic eliminations are performed and presented as intercompany differences in built-in reports. Drilldown reports make it easy to identify the source of errors and differences – typically missing booking from one of the parties, using different exchange rate between the parties, etc. From the party and counterparty report showing the difference, you can drill to account and transactions to match transactions between parties to identify errors and missing bookings.
