A true-cloud accounting solution for Private Equity Firms and Venture Capitalists

Ideal for managing a multitude of companies / legal entities, often utilising a variety of disparate accounting systems. iplicit makes consolidation and reporting easy, enabling real-time visibility across the entire portfolio.

Accounting for growing private equity and venture capital firms can get very complicated very quickly. With investments set up as separate entities or special purpose vehicles (SPVs), you need a management accounting system that can track and report on all of them simply.

Private Equity Feature


Private Equity Key Financial Data

Multi-entity accounting and consolidation for private equity businesses

iplicit allows private equity businesses to easily pull together and consolidate the key financial data for all their entities or SPVs.

The software’s multi-entity accounting features allow you to easily see your business’s overall financial position and then switch to a close-up view of an individual entity.

There is a single source of truth for the whole operation, with no more logging in and out to view different entities and no need to manipulate data in spreadsheets. New entities and SPVs can be set up by the user in minutes.

Intercompany transactions for private equity

iplicit's powerful consolidation features include the ability to automate intercompany transactions and reconciliations.

Costs can be automatically allocated to the correct legal entities or split between those entities, ending the need to work out intercompany eliminations and recharges manually.

By doing away with the need to rekey data and make calculations in spreadsheets, iplicit produces timesavings which can add up to days every month.

Private Equity Customisable Reporting

Customisable reporting for private equity businesses

iplicit's financial reporting is highly customisable. With its unlimited number of accounting dimensions, it allows you to slice and dice the data exactly as you want it.

You choose how you want the data tagged and filtered – and you can easily go from the big picture to the granular detail.

iplicit’s open API (application programming interface) allows it to integrate with other systems and can export live data to Excel and Power BI, so that your documents there are also updated in real time.

Foreign exchange challenges for private equity accounting

If you have SPVs that trade in other currencies, it can create another barrier to producing timely and accurate data.

With iplicit’s live foreign exchange feed your accounts are always up-to-date, accurate and reported in the currency of your choice.

Private Equity Account Charts

A flexible chart of accounts

iplicit's unlimited number of accounting dimensions means it can accommodate an entirely flexible chart of accounts.

You can easily choose how you want data from all your SPVs grouped, organised and filtered at any one time.

When preparing the management accounts, iplicit allows you to easily present the information differently to meet the requirements of different audiences and stakeholders, or standards such as GAP and IFRS. You can even schedule automatic reporting, with stakeholders receiving a URL link to the reports at a regular interval of your choosing.

Workflow approvals

With highly configurable authorisations and workflow, all stakeholders can have secure, permission-based access, to the information that is relevant to them. Whether this be as a fund manager, the business itself or its accountancy practice. Dashboards / enquiries have no limit to the number of fields that can be interrogated and all attributes within the system, at any level, can be reported upon in real-time.
