Ensuring that your company has effective internal controls is a critical factor in creating and protecting a company’s enterprise value and preventing financial and reputational loss. Effective controls mean more than just regulatory compliance. Effective internal controls results in operating efficiencies, increase in profitability and ensures assets are appropriately secured. Too often cost pressures, headcount reductions and process changes, as well as the increasing sophistication and complexity of information systems, mean that the critical business processes – whether operational or financial – are not well controlled.
Whether your organization is a large public company, a fast growing private company or a start-up company, the CFO Squad can work with you in designing, documenting or testing internal controls.
