Features and Benefits of Odoo 14 Consolidation Module

When the company develops and moves beyond the parental company, the financial statements must be given proper care and the reports must be viewed from time to time. With growth comes acquisitions, mergers, and different investments. It is very important to track and review the accounts of investments and acquisitions. For the reporting purpose, the financial statements of the subsidiary companies are combined and added to the parent company. This process is known as consolidation. 

The literal meaning of consolidation is the process of combining two or more things into a coherent whole. In terms of accounting, consolidation is the process in which there are more complexities and one needs to take proper care while combining it. During the consolidation of financial statements, the assets of the subsidiary company become the assets of the parent company and so do the liabilities of subsidiary companies. 

Before then the process of consolidation was done manually by the accounting and finance department of the company. This may increase the possibility of making errors and confusion. With the development of technology, many companies started using software that helped in the consolidation of financial statements.
