Bus/Financial - Finance (general) / IT/Accouting software
French term or phrase: rapprochement comptable
One of several functions of a software programme. Other functions include banking communication and liquid assets management.
Could it be account clearing/transaction clearing? This is what Internet research has turned up yet it doesn't make much sense to me.

Any ideas much appreciated.

TIA

Sorry for the typo - it was meant to say "account(ing) reconciliation" - either may be appropriate depending on context.

agree  rkillings: with 'accounting reconciliation'. May be strictly internal or may include 'rapprochements bancaires', i.e. reconciliations against the (other) banks' accounts.
