The SBT Executive Series financial report writer can generate combined and consolidated financial statements for all or a specified group of companies / funds / entities.The consolidation method is a type of investment accounting used for consolidating the financial statements of majority ownership investments.This method can only be used when the investor possesses effective control of the investee or subsidiary which often, but not always, assumes the investor owns at least 50.1% of the subsidiary’s shares or voting rights.Creating the journal entries for the eliminations can be automated as much or as little as you need.
