The Importance of Subledgers

Accounting processes involving subledgers are typically manual and segregated from financial close activities because of the complexity of financial transactions and the need for detailed and accurate record-keeping.

Common subledgers include:

Accounts Receivable

Fixed Assets




Accounts Payable

Purchases & GR/IR


Travel & Entertainment


Why Manual Subledger Processes Are Unsustainable

Manual Processes

Is your subledger data separate from your close processes? Are you performing the following processes manually?

Booking subledger balances to the general ledger

Summarizing subledger activity and analyzing transactional data

Reconciling total subledger balances to your GL balance

Recording subsystem write-offs and other adjusting enties

Risks & Challenges

Manual subledger processes have downstream effects that carry risk and pose additional challenges:

Discrepancies between subsystems and systems of record

Inability to identify issues or trends

Misstated financial information

Audit issues and compliance concerns
