I like it when as a team, we have successfully completed the monthly reports on time.

A day is less fun when I'm mainly chasing people on the phone, because I haven't received the right documents yet.

Firsthand experience

You receive an email from a local controller two days before the deadline that they are having trouble with their IFRS 16 report. What do you do?

You schedule a call with the controller, taking their time zone into account. You ask them to send you their IFRS 16 calculation template in advance so that you can prepare. During the call, you first check if you have fully understood the problem they are facing. Then you show them both the IFRS 16 template and the reporting package. Based on this, you will show how the IFRS 16 report can be prepared. It is important to explain this simply and clearly. You email them after the conversation and tell them that they can always contact you again later, should there be any other issues. When the report finally arrives, you check whether it meets all the requirements.
