Intercompany Matching Report for Sage Intacct

What is a Intercompany Matching Report?

An Intercompany Matching Report is a vital tool used in the month-end close process of multi-company enterprises. Its primary purpose is to assist Group Controllers in identifying and reconciling transactions between subsidiaries. By automatically detecting and presenting due-to and due-from transactions, this report enables controllers to easily compare and identify any discrepancies. It organizes matching transactions from each company on the same row, with a variance column indicating the degree of match. This example demonstrates the consolidation report format.
