More tips for IT Financial Management year closing

Closing the financial books of your IT department - part 2

Last minute hardware purchases

Check if any last minute hardware purchases trigger additional software contracts that are based on hardware metrics.


In case you were recently hit by a ransomware or other cyberattack, check if you have all accruals in place to cover for the damage done.

Asset Valuation

Check for unused or idle IT capacity that you might need to (partially) impair.

Vendor Commitments

Check your mid/long term commitments to vendors and see if your spend is on track. If this is not the case, you might need to impair.

Split Contracts

Some investments contain both hardware and software. Be sure to split them accordingly towards the company financial statements.

Happy holidays!
