You analyse if all profit and loss items are accounted for and within 4 working days you have the draft monthly figures and discuss them with Michiel, our Finance Manager. After the last corrections and reservations, you start with the monthly report for management. To make sure your reporting is more effective every single month you often check with Michiel, our Finance Manager and Lennaert, our CFO. At day five you can finally finalize the month end closing.
