Enabling offline payments in an online world

Enabling offline payments in an online world
There have been numerous examples of how payments digitalization has transformed society in recent years, whether it be the surge in mobile money usage in sub-Saharan Africa, the stunning success of real-time payments in markets such as Brazil, India, and Thailand, or the increased adoption of contactless payment methods following the COVID-19 pandemic. According to the World Bank, roughly two-thirds of the population now make and receive digital payments, with the share of adults in developing economies increasing from 35 percent in 2014 to 57 percent in 2021. This shift has not only led to reduced cash usage and the availability of more convenient payment options but also to much needed improvements in financial inclusion and digital access for underserved populations.

Improving Intercompany Accounting

whitePaper | August 18, 2022

Intercompany accounting is integral to the assignment of the profits of domestic and global enterprises. It also has a significant bearing on the effective tax rate of the group. Intercompany accounts therefore must be calculated accurately, accounted for and settled in a timely manner, and tagged properly so intercompany liabilities and profits can be eliminated when results are consolidated. Many of the most common hurdles to an efficient and effective intercompany process can be traced to low levels of process automation, lack of access to a single source of the truth, and decentralized and inconsistent practices. By adopting best practices and reducing the need for manual intervention, account-to-report organizations can not only reduce the cost of the process, but also improve its effectiveness.

FINANCE AUTOMATION: Thriving in the Age of Change

whitePaper | June 25, 2022

While most accounting teams have replaced their manual accounting practices with an updated, digital version, many are still following the old rules, such as close-related tasks being completed on a certain day of the month. With the use of automated accounting software, those tasks can and should be completed on your schedule not the outdated manual accounting checklist’s schedule. Accounting software that provides order and transparency to your books also lets you spread out the workload over the course of a month. The idea is that close-related work can and should be done continuously, and the team should be preparing for the close for the entire month rather than waiting until the end of it. The resulting monthly close is shorter, and the daily flow of work can be smoother.
