Product tour—Account Reconciliation

EPM: Account Reconciliation Overview

Oracle Cloud EPM Account Reconciliation

Close faster by automating account reconciliations and transaction matching. Improve the efficiency and accuracy of your financial statements while addressing security and risk typically associated with the process.

Efficiently manage the process

Built-in workflow captures when a reconciliation has been signed off and by whom. Notifications help keep your entire team on track. View the status of all reconciliations and stay in control of the entire process, from financial close to disclosure.

Leverage flexible formats

Every organization has a different strategy for how many and how detailed their reconciliation formats need to be, based on their goals. Use our prebuilt formats, created from best practices, or create your own custom formats and gain the flexibility to meet your needs.

Automate zero-balance reconciliations

Save time without compromising accuracy or increasing risk by automating time-consuming, repetitive reconciliations, such as zero-balance, low-value, or low-risk reconciliations.

Define your own rules and account profiles

For each of your accounts, create a profile containing the risk rating, workflow assignments, currency to be used, and rules to use for automatic reconciliation and dealing with variances. No custom VBScripts or custom code needed—just point and click.


Implement exception management by manually or automatically raising Alerts to ensure all issues are assigned, tracked, and removed for a smooth financial close.

Easily identify outliers

Automatically identify outliers based on any criteria you choose. For example, variance calculations help you focus energy on reconciliations that are outliers, requiring explanations and potentially slowing down the financial close.

Evaluate and improve close cycle effectiveness

Improve close cycle effectiveness with operational and configurable compliance dashboards. See which reconciliations are open, late, due today, or due shortly, as well as variance details and comments about them. Understand how the organization is doing versus policies and procedures.

Provide audit support

The secure document repository ensures reconciliations do not go missing or lost and provides global auditability. Evidence for reconciliations is audited and logged in the application to meet your compliance needs.

Automate intercompany reconciliations

Don't waste time manually reconciling intercompany reconciliations; automate them to increase accuracy and save time.

Automate high-volume transactional reconciliations

High transaction volume and labor-intensive reconciliations require sophisticated transaction matching features. The auto-match engine can match millions of transactions in minutes. It is tightly integrated into period-end reconciliation to provide evidence of reconciliation at a point in time and meet compliance requirements.

Confirm or decline auto-suggested matches

Our intelligent, automated match feature will suggest matches for you, which you can choose to accept or discard, speeding up the transaction matching process.

Support complex reconciliations

Unlimited data sources and attributes per data source can be defined to support the most complex reconciliations in your organization.

Apply matching rules for faster performance

Speed up performance by creating flexible matching rules for individual transactions or groups of transactions, such as one-to-one, many-to-one, and many-to-many matches.

Automate journal entries

Journal entries can be automatically created to resolve variances found in the matching process, again saving you time.

Automatically connect to data from many sources

Readily connect to other Oracle Cloud EPM business processes and ERP applications, such as Oracle Fusion Cloud ERP, Oracle E-Business Suite, or SAP ERP. Leverage your existing IT investments in Oracle and non-Oracle applications by connecting to data and metadata from many sources, including data from spreadsheets.

Streamline your entire close with Oracle Cloud EPM

Not a standalone solution, Account Reconciliation is fully integrated with Oracle Fusion Cloud Enterprise Performance Management (EPM), including Financial Consolidation and Close and Narrative Reporting, for a complete, end-to-end financial close process.
