Internal controls are a key part of any organization's continued growth, performance and success. With fraud at an all-time high, a well-designed internal control structure will enhance operations by improving your department's overall security and effectiveness.

Read Frequently Asked Questions

Why Should You Attend:

All annual financial reports must include an internal control report stating that management is responsible for an adequate internal control structure, and an assessment by management of the effectiveness of the control structure. Any shortcomings in these controls must also be reported. In addition, registered external auditors must attest to the accuracy of the company management assertion that internal accounting controls are in place, operational and effective. Management knows that without an effective internal control system in place, the organization may be open to fraudulent transactions, theft, hefty fines, penalties, stricter government laws and rules.
