If your organisation has multiple entities or subsidiaries, managing finances across them can be a pain. We know that dividing up costs manually, splitting invoices and re-entering information into the finance system is a headache you could do without.
The good news is that it doesn't have to be this way! bluQube makes managing sets of accounts across multiple business entities a breeze. With a dedicated Intercompany Transactions module, bluQube takes care of all that time consuming manual work for you and makes it simple to report on the data you need.
Rather than manually splitting invoices, bluQube allows you to simply forward invoices to one, or multiple business entities at the click of a button.
With the ability to set pre-defined cost allocations, bluQube will split the invoice and charge each entity accordingly. Of course, if you wish to change how costs are allocated for an individual invoice, it's simple to do so on either a percentage or fixed value basis.
When your own entity receives an invoice allocation from another, it's immediately available via your bluQube Dashboard to review and authorise electronically.
Chances are, the nature of your individual operating entities is different. Resulting in different calendars, different chart of accounts and different VAT environments. To accommodate all these differences within a single environment would be impossible while having separate systems brings about extra costs and unecessary headaches.
bluQube's multi-entity accounting allows for all these nuances and many more, housed within a single finance system.
