Tom outlines how Coprocess Reconciliation has been used to start Intertek on the road to a streamlined intercompany matching and reconciliation process in phase 1. In phase 2 Intertek has plans for the introduction of centralised settlement via Coprocess Netting

Multilateral Netting is implemented as a payables-based system, with Treasury responsible for entering certain categories of payments:
Royalties, exposure-management transfers, FX settlements, treasury fees, interest

Présentation donnée par Roger Joerg de Coprocess à L' Association Française des Trésoriers d’entreprise au cours de la réunion (AFTE) en Septembre 2014.

La présentation sur le netting intragroupe était conjointe avec Tarkett , un client Coprocess. Le contenu couvrait les compensations des flux interco dans un groupe international.

Voici les désavantages des entreprises qui ont des flux internationaux sans avoir un système de netting:

  • Nombreux et petits montants FX
  • Charges élevées des banques
  • Dates des paiements incertaines
  • Plusieurs paiements par mois
  • Peu de visibilité des paiements
  • Difficulté de rapprochement des comptes
  • Plus de rappels
  • Plus d’administration
