Finance/ Accounting professionals typically do end-of-month bank reconciliation. It is a repeated scope which will also time consuming. Some companies transact with more than 1 bank and may have many (e.g. 10 or 15) bank accounts per bank.
Finance staff will need to login into the online banking platform to download each of the bank statement in CSV format and download the many statements (e.g. 15 statements) from each bank. Then he/she will need to filter out the unnecessary information or columns of each individual statement in order to upload the bank statement to their account system (e.g. Microsoft Navision).
On the Microsoft Navision (NAV) part, firstly, he/she will need to select the correct bank account. Then he/she will need to go to the Bank Reconciliation tab at NAV and input all the information manually such as the date of the bank statement, bank account number and others. Then he/she would have to upload the formatted CSV of the bank statement after input the information. This NAV process needs to be done repeatedly for each bank account.
The bank sends the account statement to its customers every month or at regular intervals. In some cases, the various parties may not be in sync with one another. Businesses need to recognize the explanations behind the errors and accommodate the distinctions. This is done to affirm each thing is represented and the consummation adjusts coordinate.
