To understand the problems with Balance Sheet analysis of PDF copy lets understand the current process of Balance Sheet Analysis by Banks
1. Scan Images of Balance Sheet in PDF Format
Bank receives thousand of loan applications(Just considering Business Loan other loans)on a daily basis. And with every loan application Bank receives a Balance Sheet of the Company.
CA prepare and signed the balance sheet for the Company. Afterward, the Balance Sheet is scan and then sent to the bank for the loan approval in PDF Format.
These scan files are difficult to read and not searchable. The worst part for ratio analysis and loan approval all the pages are not required.
Well, few balance sheets of big companies are in text format and easily searchable. But they are very rare and contain 100-200 Pages. And banks just need 4 pages out of that.
2. Shortlisted the files for Ratio Analysis
This work is hectic since we can’t search from the image file. But still, we have to do it because it’s important. Those 3 files especially Balance Sheet, Profit and Loss, and Cashflow are very important for loan approval.
It’s the most difficult part. Bank just needs 4-5 Pages out of those 50 Pages. They ask the third party or the staff to dig our important pages from the balance sheet.
3. Extract data from Balance Sheet
Now we have the shortlisted pages from which data needs to be extracted regarding companies’ finances. This step takes most of the time in the complete process of Balance Sheet Analysis.
But still, banks need to this for loan processing. In the process bank employees or third part, manual read figures from scan pdf file. Then he enters the data in the excel sheet.
Later on this excel sheet is for credit analysis or ratio analysis. This excels many times is directly entered into the credit rating software.
Problems with existing above process
Though I have just mentioned 3 steps it takes around 4 hours to complete the process. Sometimes more than that if the company is big.
Process of shortlisting takes around half an hour(3o minutes) if the user is highly trained with all the Notes to Accounts. Then the user manually enters data which takes around 2-4 hours.
So we can say, the existing process has following drawbacks
- It’s very time consuming
- The existing process requires a lot of human labor
- Then the problem of customer irritation, since customer have to wait for days for loan approval or rejection
- We can never forget the human error that may occur during reading and entering values into excel sheet
