When a new company structure is developed as a result of a merger, acquisition, separation, or start-up, the finance and accounting organizations are greatly impacted because they must evolve to support the new operating model.
The right financial process and transaction support will enable leadership to quickly focus on managing the new entity. This can be accomplished by speeding the preclose and postclose process, mitigating compliance risk, and producing consistent and timely management information.
Enabling the mandate of the future-state organization’s processes and systems includes:
- Developing the nuts and bolts processes that support the execution of commercial transactions (for example, procure-to-pay and order-to-cash)
- Developing the infrastructure to record and report the execution of this commercial activity, including publication of the first postclose forms (i.e., SEC reporting, 10-Ks/10-Qs, financial statement consolidation)
- Developing the processes that support the ability to plan, forecast, and analyze the performance of the new enterprise.
