Section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX) requires a report outlining executive management's responsibility for internal controls and procedures for financial reporting, as well as a current assessment of their effectiveness. The company's external auditor must attest to the evaluation.
For most companies, compliance with Section 404 presents a challenge in terms of time, resources and skill sets. If your operations are geographically dispersed, you may need assistance through on-site visits to observe and document the internal control environment. Experis Finance simplifies the entire process.
We follow a logical, disciplined approach, which includes defining the scope of the SOX 404 compliance and documenting the internal control environment through the use of process flows, narratives, and risk and control matrices for key financial reporting processes. We highlight significant control points. We identify remediation gaps.
Our experienced and independent professionals ensure that your SOX documentation is complete – and compliance met – with no conflict-of-interest concerns.
