Closing the month-end books followed by the issuing of financial statements as fast as possible is one of the most common and time-consuming challenges controllers face. Depending on the company, the process can take anywhere from four days to as long as five weeks. Finally, help is here!

Fast Close: A Guide to Closing the Books Quickly, shrinks the closing interval down to just one day. The new edition of this hands-on guide presents the successful, field-tested principles of accounting guru Steven Bragg, using the same techniques he has personally used for years to issue financial statements for multidivisional companies. Filled with flowcharts and checklists to help professionals avoid delays and bring accounting department closing procedures up to date, Fast Close, straightforwardly illustrates how companies can close their financials quickly enough to issue statements within Sarbanes-Oxley’s rigid time frame.

Offering a compelling case for ending slavery to the month-long closing process, this invaluable resource shows accountants how to get it done efficiently, with authoritative discussion of shifting the timing of closing activities out of the core closing period; reducing the contents of the financial statements; standardizing the chart of accounts; centralizing accounting functions; streamlining the commission calculation process; and much more.
