Public companies must comply with the financial disclosure and internal control requirements of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 (SOX) and related Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) rules. Private companies preparing for an initial public offering also need to consider SOX regulations.
The Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) Act requires companies to implement internal financial reporting controls that ensure the accuracy of the financial information they provide to investors. During the early years of SOX, many companies documented and tested more processes and controls than were necessary, resulting in significantly higher cost and resources commitments than were initially expected.
In recent years oversight organizations have issued new standards that provide clear guidance on the evaluation and redesign of existing compliance frameworks so that they are focused and aligned against real risks to financial reporting. Our team has incorporated this guidance into our risk-based approach to SOX compliance. Our goal is provide an efficient, affordable approach to complying with the regulations, while at the same time improving your internal controls and related processes.
