Corporate governance and internal controls are the backbone of successful companies. A strong system of processes, controls, and policies affects the way your company meets future goals, including an initial public offering, acquisition, or simply enhancing its value and efficiency. We develop and implement strong business processes. In fact, we “wrote the book” on the subject, How to Comply with Sarbanes-Oxley Section 404, now in its third edition.
We engaged top-industry writer Mike Ramos to help design a cutting-edge methodology which evolved into a consortium of six firms, a comprehensive and efficient methodology, and the bestselling book on the subject.
If your company requires compliance for Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX), or you are looking for improved corporate governance for other internal or external purposes, our team of experienced consultants have the ability to design a complete and efficient control environment. We offer the following services:
includes full control assessments and gap analyses for all financial processes, additional processes and control recommendations, documentation updates, and tests of design effectiveness.
includes initial controls assessment, gap analysis, customized process, and control recommendations appropriate for your company’s stage and size. We design controls for mission-critical business processes, resulting in significant risk reduction at a fraction of the cost of full SOX compliance. SOX Lite can be used as a foundation for future SOX 404 compliance. We have led dozens of companies through this process.
includes design and execution of a risk-based strategy to test internal controls for SOX compliance or other corporate governance objectives. Scheduled testing can take place throughout the year at intervals appropriate for your company and its risk environment.
