What is Account Reconciliation?

You can use Account Reconciliation to ensure that the money leaving an account matches the money spent. To do this, the balances at the end of a given accounting period are contrasted. Reconciliations between accounts are critical to ensure the accuracy and completeness of financial statements. In addition, a solid reconciliation process can reduce the risk of financial corrections and lower external audit costs.

Challenges of Account Reconciliation

Many organizations run into several challenges within the Account Reconciliation process. These challenges take additional time and effort, slowing down the overall financial close process:

  • Sifting through massive amounts of segmented spreadsheets
  • Reconciling data between multiple software applications used within a company
  • Maintaining data integrity despite point solutions that are entirely separate from consolidated financial results
  • Reconcile data that changes in real-time during the period end process
  • Prioritizing which accounts need to be reconciled based on materiality
  • Obtaining proper reviews and approvals
  • Ensuring an appropriate trail of audit for account reconciliations
