Internal Controls and Compliance Audits
The present day complex business and regulation environment has made it essential that a comprehensive and critical review of the internal controls and policies of an organization is done to ensure that leakages in management and statutory compliances are plugged.
A review of the internal controls and compliances is a systematic independent appraisal activity done for an organization to review whether these are commensurate with the nature and size of the organization. It entails, a review of the entire operations, evaluating the actual performances in comparison with predetermined targets. This identifies the cause of variances and helps to formulate corrective actions, providing a comprehensive insight into the functioning and effectiveness of processes to ensure compliance to regulatory requirements.
Compliance audit is a critical component of the internal control process for any business and a prerequisite for assessing compliance with corporate performance standards. Whether it is compliance with internal corporate procedures or external regulatory requirements, effective internal auditing is the cornerstone of compliance management and continuous improvement. Effective compliance management protects and enhance clients’ brand and reputation by helping them avoid the adverse affects of non-compliance such as: litigation, fines, prosecution, bad PR, and the risks, costs, liability, and damage to brand reputation associated with non-compliance.
As part of Compliance Audit, we undertake a complete review of all tax and statutory compliance, including procedural requisites, related to income tax, corporate laws, indirect taxes, etc. and provide a comprehensive report to the clients on the existing status of the compliance along with recommended improvements.
Today the world is moving towards better systems and processes, to ensure an organization is strong enough to weather the myriad changes of a dynamic environment. The global shrinkage of the world has made businesses’ rethink their strategy with a fresh perspective not only on compliances with domestic laws but also with global procedures. A review of processes and systems becomes indispensable in such an environment.
We conduct a review of systems and process within organizations to critically review that the operations at various levels are flawlessly followed, ensuring effective controls and operating efficiency. We constantly re-engineer our review procedures to meet the increasing expectations of stakeholders and management by navigating the new risk landscape, providing deeper insights and foresight enabling them to cut through the clutter.
The results are reviewed and the key findings along with recommendations are presented to the management of organizations, advising them off continuous improvement strategies.
Special Audits & Assessments
India is a developing nation, plagued with problems of illiteracy, malnutrition, low human health index, women’s empowerment, slow infrastructure development, etc. Organizations like the World Bank, United Nations, etc. in conjunction with the developed countries of the world give aid to India for such projects ensuring inclusive and sustainable growth. Indian Government also gives aids to various organisations and NGOs for eradication of such problems.
The donor often requires the agency receiving aid to be responsible for the achievement of the social cause within established budgets and processes for their use. An evaluation of the performance of the organization against these is made mandatory.
We examine and review the standards set not only in terms of the achievability of the monetary targets but also in terms of the actual deliverables of the entity in terms of social cause achieved. Thus the audit conducted by us goes beyond the conventional audit, which merely involves a scrutiny of financial transactions and books of accounts.
Our fundamental objective in undertaking such audits is to contribute to the inclusive growth envisaged by the Donor Agencies for a better India.
