Using our unique methodology and proprietary software, we can undertake a comprehensive audit covering up to 3 years of your transactions, in order to identify any over-payments and recover these from your suppliers. Our three-step approach is designed to deliver results quickly whilst ensuring a thorough audit is undertaken, covering all potential avenues:

1. Supplier Balance Reconciliation: A full reconciliation of your supplier accounts to identify aged credit balances.

2. Payment Review: Identification and recovery of a range of errors that are missed by finance systems, for example transposition errors or incorrect supplier payments.

3. Contract Compliance Review: A detailed, line-by-line analysis of your invoices and contracts. This ensures you have had benefit of everything you’ve negotiated with suppliers, including unit cost pricing, discounts and rebates.
