DIRECT CONSOLIDATION

Consolidate your expertise

When considering a company within the economic landscape, it is usually either a parent company or the subsidiary of another company. When reading financial and economic literature, words such as 'group' and ‘consolidation’ belong to the common parlance. Continuer

Knowledge of consolidation is now a must when searching for a job in the financial, reporting and accounting areas.


"Direct Consolidation" introduces up-to-date pedagogical, and practical approaches.

Pedagogical, because the author has trained and assisted hundreds of international groups, introducing them to the necessary methodology with which to face unpredictable and difficult group situations.

Up-to-date because the methodology explained in this book is applied in today's consulting activity and within Sigma Conso software, one of the most recent and complete international consolidation, reporting and planning softwares (including all IFRS requirements).

Practical for two reasons. The case studies are not theoretical but rather real life examples and each case study is solved completely with the necessary justifications.


“Direct consolidation” is written for anyone wanting to acquire a solid knowledge and a correct understanding of statutory consolidation techniques. For experienced readers, additional case studies are introduced and solved in completion in order to “Consolidate your expertise”.
