Statement reconciliation is a fun job, said no one, ever!
Traditionally one of the least enjoyable and most procrastinated tasks in the accounts payable (AP) team, statement reconciliation is well overdue to be overhauled.
Reconciling statements to supplier invoices is an arduous task.
While on paper, supplier statement reconciliation seems like a straightforward job (and in principle, it is), it requires one of your team to check and validate every line on every statement carefully.
Human error is all too easy with manual tasks.
When your already busy AP department is dealing with high volumes of statements, it only takes a moment’s inattention to miss a line or an inaccuracy. It also requires proficiency in Excel, lots of time and attention to detail.
Manual statement reconciliation requires little accountability.
Few are willing to take responsibility for the accuracy or ownership of the process. Repeated errors on critical supplier accounts and random errors can be challenging to locate and resolve, especially if the task is shared.
Despite its importance, statement reconciliation isn’t a popular job!
Combing through piles of statements isn’t a job many willingly put their hands up to tackle, so it’s often pushed to the bottom of the priority queue unless a ‘stop credit’ issue becomes apparent.
