Internal Controls



At times you may need a trained outside professional to evaluate your company’s operations to  determine if the appropriate controls are in place to ensure proper handling of resources and to  protect yourself from employee theft.
We assess your internal control systems to determine the efficiency and effectiveness of your  operating procedures. Then we make recommendations that help your company become  stronger and more profitable by correcting any inefficient or ineffective operating procedures  we find.


  • Implement segregation of duties so that duties are divided, or segregated, among  different people to reduce risk of error or inappropriate actions. No one person has  control over all aspects of any financial transaction.
  • Make sure transactions are authorized by a person delegated approval authority when  the transactions are consistent with policy and funds are available.
  • Ensure records are routinely reviewed and reconciled, by someone other than the  preparer or transactor, to determine that transactions have been properly processed.
  • Make certain that equipment, inventories, cash and other property are secured  physically, counted periodically, and compared with item descriptions shown on control  records.
  • Provide employees with appropriate training and guidance to ensure they have the  knowledge necessary to carry out their job duties, are provided with an appropriate  level of direction and supervision, and are aware of the proper channels for reporting  suspected improprieties.
  • Document policies and procedures and making them accessible to employees. The  documented policies and procedures provide day-to-day guidance to your staff and  continuation of duties in the event of prolonged employee absences or turnover.
  • Review operations to ascertain whether results are consistent with established  objectives and goals and whether the operations are being carried out as planned.
