About (Balance Sheet Substantiation)
One of the key controls for ensuring the accuracy of Citi's P&L is through ensuring the accuracy of its Balance Sheet. The basis for ensuring this accuracy is through the process of substantiating the balances in the general ledger back to supporting documentation on monthly basis.
Lacking good controls over the Balance Sheet Substantiation (BSS) process can result in inaccurate reporting of the company's Revenues and Expenses and require adjustments including write-offs.
