How can you maintain highest degree of accuracy in reporting?
For maintaining the highest degree of accuracy in reporting, we need to use the same chart of accounts being used while budget preparation. This will help to put the expense and income at the same place and will assist us in carrying out the correct analysis. A simplified reporting module will also help in this regard. The operational managers can see the actual performance vs. the budgeted figures and can express the reason behind the same. This will also help in identifying any left out or over written expense by mistake or with wrong intention. Effective internal control procedures will be maintained for data integrity. A calendar which sequences budgets, reporting and forecasting activities will be prepared and will be thoroughly maintained.
