Since when did budgeting become a process that companies dread? Just say the word “budget,” and you’ll elicit at least a few groans or eyerolls from teams outside of finance. It’s daunting: the weight of the next few years rests on a couple of forecasts, financial projections and line-item lists. As a result, cross-functional teams are under a lot of stress to ensure that their cases and arguments are heard. In some ways, the budgeting process almost feels combative.

Finance and accounting outsourcing is a growing trend among middle market and high-growth companies, providing a cost-effective way for organizations to improve the finance and accounting function. The key benefits of outsourcing include fractional use of finance and accounting professionals, enhanced processes and technologies, and stronger compliance measures. Outsourcing enables organizations to scale resources up and down as needed with no obligation to pay salaries or benefit costs. Additionally, it alleviates the burden of hiring, training and maintaining accounting staff.

As more and more data pours into the office of the CFO, experts say, minimizing its complexity and maximizing its usefulness becomes critical. “The amount of data is phenomenal,” says Mr. Whitehead of Airbus Defence and Space, “but what’s worse is the lack of harmonization. Unstructured data is what kills you. The key for me is how to have clear data in a usable and consistent form, which can be turned into succinct information the business can look at, understand where the value chain is, and make decisions.”

VAT rules can be complex, HMRC – a gauntlet. In this eBook, we demystify some of the facts around compliance, tax and expense management. The British economy has gone from boom to bust. The recession followed by a long period of austerity and caution has altered spending behaviours while the government has increasingly cracked down on tax evasion and fraud. HMRC has become more focused on assisting businesses of all sizes to comply with their policies and implement good governance when it comes to finances. Nevertheless, the reality can sometimes be confusing and the penalties for getting it wrong – severe. Many businesses outsource their tax management to experts or muddle through, running the risk of non-compliance. There’s a real need for unambiguous, helpful advice about expenses, VAT and HMRC compliance. We’ve created this guide to help shine some light on the processes, practices and behaviours around tax and expenses based on some of the frequently asked questions we receive. Wh

As more pressure is placed on the finance team to provide meaningful insights more frequently, it is becoming increasingly necessary to speed up business processes, as well as have immediate access to the most up-to-date information. The traditional expense reporting process is a drain from both perspectives. Using software to manage employee expenses can provide a more efficient means of managing the process, however most solutions are simply a digital version of the traditional paper process. This can limit the amount of time savings you can gain. This paper will demonstrate the time savings you can accomplish by implementing a real time expense reporting solution versus one that relies on employee generated expense reports.

Finance teams spend too much time on administrative tasks relating to these processes—collecting, consolidating and reconciling data, for example—and are left with little time for analysis, strategy development and target setting. Accuracycan be patchy, results unreliable.

While being the backbone of many organization’s Offices of Finance and Accounting, it is now commonly acknowledged that this overreliance on Excel spreadsheets coupled with the lack of visibility associated with its use represents a very real risk. With automation available to improve both process efficiency and effectiveness, the challenge many companies face isn’t why they should transform their process but how. The key to overcoming this challenge is creating a strong business case for investment. One that not only sets out the objectives of the project but is also underpinned by a robust financial analysis, in the form of qualitative and quantitative ROI, and a thorough understanding of risk.

One of the most common things we hear when we speak to companies about improving their financial close process through automation is “But I already have an ERP system.” It’s true that an ERP goes a long way towards helping manage some of the financial close process. However, there is still a great deal of work that is taken outside of the ERP each period end and managed manually.

Typically, Shared Services Center (SSCs) automation initiatives have been undertaken to reduce costs and improve efficiency. These goals are achieved relatively easily within the first few years, most immediately through reduced labor costs and centralized activities. In fact, standardization and centralization deliver up to 50% savings. During subsequent phases, technology automation and outsourcing cut costs further. But, if cost reduction is the only clearly defined goal, organizations will reach a point of diminishing returns.

In terms of reconciliations, we tend to spend most of our time simply gathering data before we can even begin to think about reconciling it. Once the data is finally in the right format, the majority of our time is then spent manually going through the matching process, rather than spending that time focused on the areas that are most critical to us, as can be seen in the diagram on the right.

The primary objective of any financial transformation project is to achieve process improvements by improving the quality, effectiveness and efficiency of financial information, ultimately enhancing shareholder value.

On the right, the Hackett Group displays that best in class companies actually can be seen closing in fewer days, with greater automation and significant lower audit fees, emphasizing the idea that you really can do more with less.
