The Hackett Group: Improving Intercompany Accounting

Intercompany accounting is integral to the assignment of the profits of domestic and global enterprises. It also has a significant bearing on the effective tax rate of the group. Intercompany accounts therefore must be calculated accurately, accounted for and settled in a timely manner, and tagged properly so intercompany liabilities and profits can be eliminated when results are consolidated.

Many of the most common hurdles to an efficient and effective intercompany process can be traced to low levels of process automation, lack of access to a single source of the truth, and decentralized and inconsistent practices. By adopting best practices and reducing the need for manual intervention, account-to-report organizations can not only reduce the cost of the process, but also improve its effectiveness.
