Banks and regulators often require audits to gain an added level of comfort over a Company’s internally prepared reports. An audit is performed to provide an opinion that the financial statements fairly represent the company’s financial condition and operating results and involves obtaining an understanding of a company’s processes, information technology, and internal control structure;, and performing in-depth analytics over the company’s data, testing selected transactions and obtaining outside confirmation of certain information. In addition to the standard audit there are some more specialized versions, including:
- Governmental “Yellow Book” audits
- Single Audits (OMB Circular A-133)
- Retirement Plan (ERISA) audits
- Health and Welfare Plan (ERISA) audits
- Agreed Upon Procedures
Internal Control Studies
Internal control studies are focused on identifying risks of errors and fraud in transaction processing and can take a variety of forms, such as:
- Opinion about the effectiveness of internal control as a result of an audit or a stand-alone engagement
- Opinion on the design of controls
- Report on the internal controls of a service organization (SOC-1)
- Communication of significant deficiencies and material weaknesses in internal control noted during a financial statement audit
Benchmark Studies & Industry Comparisons
Benchmarking performance against that of competitors can help a business establish internal goals, pinpoint market opportunities, exploit competitor weaknesses, and create the kind of esprit de corps to unify and motivate their team.
