Does your company need an Internal Control Study?

An internal control study may be performed to help your business identify weaknesses in procedures and develop new processes to deter and detect fraud before it occurs. Internal control is considered the frontline defense against fraud schemes. The study assesses the adequacy of controls to ensure that business transactions are processed completely, accurately, with appropriate authorization, and in accordance with management's directives.

An internal control study can be customized to focus on specific transaction cycles, such as:

  • Revenue to Cash (Revenue/Billing, Cash Receipts)
  • Procure to Pay (Cash Disbursements, Procurement)
  • Hire to Pay (Payroll, Human Resources)
  • Treasury and Investments
  • Inventory
  • Period End Financial Statements (General Ledger, Financial Reporting)
