Were your employees feeling the need to do things their own way or did your company have trouble keeping records? You may want to consult a consultant to avoid these issues and prevent unnecessary losses.

 

A company’s internal controls go beyond its financial operations.

Included in these activities are the Internal Environment, Objective Setting, Event Identification, Risk Assessment, Risk Response, Control Activities, Information & Communication, and Monitoring.
