Course Description

Timely, accurate, and consistent data is always of critical importance and operational and strategic decisions are based upon it and precise planning depends upon it. Statutory, regulatory, and compliance requirements add yet another layer of complexity. Global organizations are required to support reporting with multiple accounting standards, and new legislation requires new systems and processes. The information age has created a class of investors and shareholders who expect fast and easy access to the data created by current business activities.
This session will present both strategic and tactical suggestions that can help dramatically improve your fiscal closing process. The instructor will provide best practice solutions to prevent getting overloaded by an overabundance of internal controls and suggested metrics. Regardless of company size or complexity, all successful financial close processes require continuous communication, comprehensive documentation and a flexible, responsive organization.

Learning Objectives

  • Defining the Fiscal Closing Process Flow.

  • Identifying KPIs for the Closing Process.

  • Determining the Bottlenecks within Your Fiscal Close Process.

  • 10 Best Practices to Improve Your Fiscal Closing Process.

  • Developing a Fiscal Close Scorecard.

  • Defining a Benchmarking Approach.
