MODERN APPROACHES FOR EQUITY TO PAYROLL RECONCILIATIONS
Webcast

Tim Oakes, Moss Adams
Jesus Renteria, Moss Adams

Global

The SEC's T+1 stock settlement compliance date is May 28th, requiring 24 hours to issue shares to employees after a vest or option exercise. Navigating data transfer between stock-based compensation equity programs and payroll was already challenging—with this tight turnaround, companies and brokers are at a heightened risk for errors, which could lead to tax-related fines and employee dissatisfaction. The solution? Implement strong reconciliation processes and controls between the HR, Payroll, and brokerage platforms.

As your company grows, so will the volume of vesting and exercising stock and options. Having an automated system that performs reconciliations with accuracy and timeliness is critical.

KEY LEARNING POINTS: 

  • Challenges when there are gaps in reconciliation controls
  • Benefits of reconciliation processes and reporting
  • Pros and cons of common reconciliation tools and approaches, including spreadsheets, automation scripts, and custom applications
