Fast close

Goals and objectives

  • Reduce time required to prepare financial statements and management reporting for each period
  • Improve quality of information to be submitted
  • Enhance internal control over preparation of financial statements

Our approach

Deloitte offers an integrated approach to fast-close projects. The approach is tailored to meet specific industry needs as well as specific tax, accounting, legal, technological and procedural issues. Our approach is aimed at optimizing complex financial and management reporting procedures in the following areas:

  • Data: the volume and quality of data processed and submitted during the closing period  effect reporting time and quality;
  • Processes: standardization, centralization or decentralization, optimization, and efficient reporting process organization impact reporting quality and time;
  • Accounting methodology: the requirements of data and processes are defined by an accounting methodology that meets the needs of financial statement users, giving a fair presentation of business activities and covering international and statutory reporting issues;
  • IT: Information technologies form an integral part of an efficient reporting system. They must meet business requirements, enable efficient data storage and processing and ensure data reliability and security;
  • Personnel: effective segregation of duties, communications, HR management and professional training are key to efficient labor organization;
  • Management: efficient management, monitoring and control of the reporting processes ensures the coordination of all the areas mentioned above.
