Internal Control Assessments
A Top-Down, Risk-Based Approach
Internal control assessments are designed to meet the requirement that you report on the effectiveness of your internal controls over financial reporting, and ensure your accountability for accuracy and integrity. Hein has helped companies deal with the wide-reaching impacts of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX) and its counterparts, NI 52-109 in Canada and ASX Principle 7 in Australia, from the onset, with a top-down, risk-based approach prescribed by Auditing Standard 5.
- Your company is planning an initial public offering (IPO)
- You are contemplating a merger with a public company
- Your company has obtained accelerated filer status
As one of the country’s top firms serving SEC reporting clients, Hein’s extensive experience in all areas of compliance services builds efficiency and value into your assessment; and our risk assessment approach can address your overall company risk and identify areas for significant operational savings—going beyond mandatory SOX 404 compliance.
Internal controls are not just for public companies. Any company who wants to reduce risk, improve their processes, and save time and money can benefit from strong internal controls.
