The Consolidation Process

What is Financial Consolidation?
Consolidation in financial accounting is a technique that summarizes a group of companies' financial statements into one. This offers the benefit of viewing the whole group's financial information together to see how all companies are doing combined. Increasingly, global organizations need to integrate data from multiple transactional systems, transition to new international financial reporting standards, and improve their transparency and regulatory compliance procedures. Companies use a variety of tools (spreadsheets, emails, pivots and queries) to identify and summarize all business unit activity that interacting with other business units.
This can often mean thousands of transactions, all of which must be identified, reconciled and eliminated!

Intercompany elimination refers to the process for removal of transactions between companies included in a group in the preparation of consolidated accounts. Intercompany transactions (sales, services, transfers) must be eliminated in the parent financial statements otherwise a company could be double-counting activity. However, the process involves a lot of reporting and paperwork for intercompany relationships can be quite complicated.

Data must be reviewed, reconciled and approved before process is complete.

Significant Account Level

Foreign Currency Translation

How is Consolidation impacted by various currencies?
Businesses may enter into transactions (sales, payments, etc.) in multiple currencies. Each business unit translates these items to its functional currency at an appropriate exchange rate. The QBU then prepares periodic reports of its position (balance sheet) and activity (income and cash flow statements) in that functional currency. Per accounting standards, before results are consolidated into the parents GL, foreign currency amounts must be translated (converted) from the subsidiary currency into the parent currency. Different types of transactions must be translated at different rates.
P&L activity (sales, COGs, expenses) must be converted at the AVERAGE monthly rate. Balance sheet activity (Cash, AR, AP) must be converted at the ENDING monthly rate.

When an item is settled, the difference due to exchange rate movement in the amount accrued and the amount settled is treated as foreign exchange gain or loss in the financials.

Different Accounting Standards

How can different accounting standards worldwide impact foreign currency transactions? Currently, most US companies with international subsidiaries are required to account for this activity per the standards of GAAP (Generally Accepted Accounting Standards). However, International Financial Accounting Standards (IFRS) will be required adoption by US Companies by 2014 unless the SEC decides to delay implementation.

Others will find that their existing GL is quite appropriate, but that they have a few subsystem areas that will require adjustment. Others will require that they need to do something more substantial, for example restructuring their business, up to the point of reimplementing

Complicated Consolidations
As you can see, intercompany accounting can be a VERY complicated process!
Due to acquisitions, intercompany activity and foreign currency accounting, getting a real picture of the state of the total business (consolidation) can be challenging. Compliance with different accounting standards, various reporting and filing methods, disparate general ledgers and multiple currencies can be an accounting and reporting nightmare. Reviewing, matching, reconciling and accounting for multi-entity, multi-currency intercompany transactions can often slow the monthly close process down by days or even weeks.
In fact, mid-size to larger companies often retain an entire team in the accounting department just to do consolidations!

Using Excel for Intercompany accounting, consolidation and translation is not the answer.
Excel is a great personal productivity tool but is not designed for complex calculations, accounting for multiple lines of business and/or entities or complicated consolidations. Additionally, Excel spreadsheets do not lend themselves to auditing, process management, version control and approvals. Companies with millions of dollars in revenue using Excel as their consolidation tool are exposing themselves for errors, deficiencies, or material weakness in internal control.

RapidApp (cont.)
Phase 1: Prepare In the Prepare phase, our objective is to build your project mission and definition. We will build a roadmap and framework for the entire project. We define the scope and terms; identify people and resources, milestones and targets. We work with your project team to establish and communicate expectations for the project and perform baseline Oracle training.
All implementation strategies are explored and decided upon during this phase.

We will establish the base line technical infrastructure that will be necessary to complete the project.
All of these elements are the basis for developing your project plan.

At the end of the prepare phase, the deliverables include: A definition of Scope, Objectives & Approach that will guide the project. A RapidApp WBS that outlines all tasks as well as a resource plan. A Quality Plan for all phases and deliverables.

RapidApp (cont.)
Phase 2: Configure In the Configure phase, youll establish the boundaries of your project. We will work with your team to capture your functional requirements and translate those requirements into a technical design. The technical design becomes the foundation against which we develop the data warehouse, ETL and dashboards. The conference room pilot at the end of the Configure phase will be the point at which we validate that the develop solution matches the defined requirements. At the conclusion of the configure phase, you will have: A definition of Scope, Objectives & Approach that will guide the project. Application Functional Design specification document(s) Application Technical Design specification document(s) Conference Room Pilot Scripts that were used to validate the system A working non-production environment (data warehouse, ETL, dashboards and reports)

RapidApp (cont.)
Phase 3: Test Youre going live soon, and were helping you prepare. Were with you to update and configure the final system configuration. Well help you conduct system testing to ensure a smooth transition into production. Well also help you determine a training approach for your end users, design training material and a training environment, and conduct the training, if requested. At the end of the test phase, the deliverables include: Documented Test Scripts that you used to test the system A complete end user training approach ready for rollout including Training Guides A fully tested, production-ready system. .

RapidApp (cont.)
Phase 4: Deploy Your Oracle solution is live. As you make the transition, we can remain with you in a support role, helping to troubleshoot, teaching you how to maximize the value of your new system, and identifying any new opportunities to continue with the transformation to an e-business company. At the end of this phase, you will have: A System Configuration Document A Production Software Infrastructure Summary A Deployment Plan Stopped doing your business processes in your legacy system. Moved all project support activities to your production support team. Trained your end users.

RapidApp: The Value Proposition

Allows organizations to realize immediate cost savings through an accelerated implementation. Establishes a budget conscious methodology that deploys functionality to satisfy core functional requirements. Promotes the selection, inclusion, and customization of additional functionality through additional discovery after your product is implemented. Facilitates a phased approach in which knowledge transfer is conducted whereby clients assume ownership of future project phases; reducing dependency on external services and associated costs. Utilizes pre-built, customizable templates (models, forms, reports and business logic) reducing development cycles and project cost.

ALA Delivery Resource Model

Leveraging the Architect Lead Associate model yields higher productivity at lower cost, which: Maximizes value over traditional team approach Minimizes risk of single threaded SME approach
Architect The Architect designs the solution, and is interacting with the work stream leads to ensure implementation approach is optimal.

Lead The Leads are Subject Matter Experts, responsible for client interactions, requirements, ensuring Associates execute the work plan tasks and validates solution.
Associate The Associate may be on-site or remote, executes the work plan tasks, unit test, and provides completed work to Lead for testing. Adds 3rd shift productivity to team.
