Crypto reconciliation controls: Ensure accurate general ledger entries
Ensure your internal database, sub-ledger and general ledger are reconciled in an auditable way.
If you’re an accountant or financial controller at a crypto enterprise, ensuring you have accurate and complete financial data is vital. Using a crypto sub-ledger like Cryptio can help with retrieving accurate data. However, you still face the issue of reconciling the sub-ledger with your general ledger, which requires correct account mapping in your sub-ledger. Failing to reconcile your on-chain transaction data with your general ledger leaves you at risk of producing inaccurate financial records.
Cryptio's Reconciliation module is specifically designed to address this challenge. With the in-app capabilities, you can easily:
- Test the completeness and accuracy of account mappings to your general ledger.
- Streamline the Chart of Accounts (CoA) mapping and sync process.
This module sets the foundation for complete IFRS and GAAP-compliant reporting ready for audit.
The high risk of incorrect financial statements impacting the audit
Using a crypto sub-ledger that’s purpose-built for accounting and financial reporting can significantly reduce the risk of inaccurate or incomplete transaction data. To reconcile this data with your general ledger, you need to map transactions to the CoA, dividing them into five account types assets, equities, liabilities, expenses and income.
Incomplete mapping or error in this process can substantially imbalance the double-entry accounting process (debit vs credit). Therefore, it is vital that you use the right methodology to ensure accurate financial records and compliance with accounting standards. With Cryptio’s Reconciliation module, it is easier than ever to adhere to this methodology.
Streamline financial accuracy with Cryptio’s Reconciliation module
Cryptio’s Reconciliation module helps you create accurate and complete financial records in our crypto sub-ledger that you can directly sync to your general ledger like Netsuite, Quickbooks and Xero. We also cover a wide array of accounting softwares like SAP, Dynamics 365, FinancialForce, Sage and Workday.
With our Reconciliation module powering your audit preparation, you can be confident that your accounting and financial reporting is accurate and complete, reducing the risk of failing or prolonging financial audits.
Let’s dive into the ways the Reconciliation module enables you to have confidence in your ledger entries.
Dynamic labeling system to support reconciliation
A complete crypto sub-ledger reconciliation starts with a dynamic labeling system, which helps categorize millions of on and off-chain transactions into categories associated with the chart of accounts.
In Cryptio, our labeling system automatically categorizes 50+ types of transactions to lighten the burden faced by finance teams and reduce the time taken to complete reporting. These labels can then be used to map transactions to the CoA and ultimately push them to your general ledger, ready to be reconciled with your fiat accounting.
Ensure a complete and accurate sub-ledger with trial balance
Usually prepared at the end of the month or the fiscal year, a trial balance is a statement that checks that the debit and credit totals of the general ledger accounts match. Through this check, you can ensure that debits and credits have been correctly entered during the double-entry accounting process. Businesses preparing for audit need to evidence testing of trial balances.
In our Reconciliation module, you can check trial balances are complete and accurate across the five different account types. You can test trial balances for the entire transaction history or specific time periods.
This is a critical internal control that helps to identify errors, discrepancies and unrecorded transactions, helping you to ensure accurate financial reporting.
Resolve incomplete CoA mapping and streamline the mapping process
Producing accurate and complete financial records requires you to have mapped your transactions correctly to the CoA. However, human error can sometimes lead to incorrect CoA mapping.
Within the Reconciliation module, you can view every transaction that has incomplete CoA mapping. The module also gives you statistics that reveal the overall accuracy of your mapping. As a result, you can identify errors and discrepancies swiftly and rectify them all in one place. Previously, you might have cross-checked various sources of data - a very time-intensive process. With Cryptio’s Reconciliation module, you can significantly reduce the time taken to identify and resolve red flags.
