The Comissão de Viticultura da Região dos Vinhos Accounting Department, located at its headquarters, consists of four employees, who use the most modern management tools to implement the stipulations of the plan of accounts (POC).
Some 80.000 documents are processed by this Department each year.
The Accounting Department executes the administrative and financial tasks inherent to the accounting processing (general and analytic accounting), stock management and invoicing, treasury management, current accounts and fixed assets management.
This Department is also responsible for coordinating the administrative and financial activities of the Vinicultural Station Amândio Galhano (EVAG), in Arcos de Valdevez, as well as those of the 47 branches in the Vinho Verde Region.
The software used is an integrated management package consisting of several inter-linked modules, that enable the continuous updating of information without the need for any manual accounting entries. From invoicing to cash-flow management and banking, all operations and current accounts can be integrated, as well as the general and analytic accounts can be immediately updated.
Each year, the accounts are subject to an external audit made by a specialised company, which issues its Opinion and Report on compliance with the accepted accounting principles. This audit includes the examination, by sampling, of the Profit and Loss Accounts and of the documents supporting the Annual Balance of Accounts. The audit is performed in accordance with the international audit standards and is a guarantee of the C.V.R.V.V.'s strict compliance with the accounting principles required under law.
