Following corporate failures like Enron, Worldcom and Parmalat, there are more UK and international regulations and guidelines to comply with than ever before.
Meeting these guidelines can often be overwhelming but Mazars can install systems using best practice to help manage your reporting. This allows you to concentrate on the daily running of your business and to use your resources more efficiently.
Mazars can guide you through the information and set up the systems to help you comply with:
- The UK Corporate Governance Code . These guidelines for sound governance are now officially part of the London Stock Exchange’s listing rules.
- The Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX). All organisations registered with Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) must now adhere to Section 404.
- Statement on Standards for Attestation Engagements (SSAE) No. 16 – a US standard set by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) - requires that a company audits its control activities to a required format.
Our internal audit team is greatly experienced in both the public and private sectors and have developed a risk-based approach to internal audit. We can review your internal audit function, assess its effectiveness and refine it to suit your business.
You can choose the level of input you need from us; we can work at a consultancy level, or alongside your in-house team.
