Financial shared service

Economic globalisation has fuelled the expansion and business diversification of enterprises, which have led to higher demand for financial operation model and operational efficiency. Financial shared service centre (FSSC) has been proved to be an effective solution to enhance the standardisation of financial accounting and processes, and promote the integration of business and finance. Today, more than 90% of the Fortune Global 500 companies have adopted financial shared service and outsourcing, while more than 500 FSSCs have been put into operation in China. The scope and depth of shared services and outsourcing continue to expand.

Our financial shared service is dedicated to helping companies integrate existing resources, optimise the efficiency of organisations and processes, reduce the cost of financial operation, promote the integration of business and finance, and strengthen financial control.
