Streamline accruals and be a better partner to finance.

Reminds vendors and collects accruals automatically.

Brightflag reminds vendors to submit accruals so you don’t have to. Vendors receive multiple notifications leading up to the close of each accrual period, and submit their unbilled estimates directly in Brightflag’s secure portal, eliminating the need for back and forth in emails and spreadsheets.

Review, adjust, and approve vendor accruals with ease.

Once an accrual is received, it can go through an optional review step. This is particularly helpful for corporate legal departments that want to apply their own level of scrutiny to unbilled estimates before sharing them with finance, which helps to avoid material over- or under-accruals.

Send accruals to finance automatically.

Accruals can be sent to finance automatically on a set schedule, eliminating manual work and strengthening the monthly close process. Accruals can be sent via email, SFTP, or API. Of course, legal ops and finance can always run a report on unbilled estimates on demand, too.
