Internal Controls

<--

At times you may need a trained, independent professional to evaluate your company's operations to determine if the appropriate controls are in place to ensure misappropriation of assets does not occur.

We assess your internal control systems to determine the efficiency and effectiveness of your operating procedures. Then we make recommendations that help your company become stronger and more profitable by correcting any inefficient or ineffective operating procedures discovered.

What we do for you...

  • Implement segregation of financial tasks so that duties are divided, or segregated, among different people to reduce risk of error or inappropriate actions. No one person should possess control over all aspects of any financial transaction.
  • Make sure transactions are authorized by a person delegated approval authority when the transactions are consistent with policy and funds are available.
  • Ensure records are routinely reviewed and reconciled by someone other than the preparer or transactor to determine that transactions have been properly processed.
  • Make certain that equipment, inventories, cash and other property are secured physically, counted periodically and compared with item descriptions shown on control records.
  • Provide employees with appropriate training and guidance to ensure they have the knowledge necessary to carry out their job duties, are provided with an appropriate level of direction and supervision and are aware of the proper channels for reporting suspected improprieties.
  • Document policies and procedures and make them accessible to employees. The documented policies and procedures provide day-to-day guidance to your staff and continuation of duties in the event of prolonged employee absences or turnover.
  • Review operations to ascertain whether results are consistent with established objectives and goals and whether the operations are being carried out as planned.
