Internal control consulting

Are you satisfied with your current internal controls framework?

The need to have robust and efficient systems and processes is a prerequisite for good controls governance. As your business grows and matures, the impact of changes on systems and processes can be huge, with the all-too-frequent result that tried-and-tested processes have started to fail. 

A timely review of your processes and controls can help ensure that their design continues to address your needs and risks, and also ensures their efficiency and effectiveness. Indeed most leading countries' corporate governance codes now require boards of companies to annually review their controls and processes across financial, operational, and compliance areas to ensure that they are working adequately. 

How can we help?  

At PwC, we can help you by:
  • Developing strong board and management processes to enable effective governance;
  • Guiding management to develop a clear "tone from the top";
  • Measuring and monitoring your control culture;
  • Ensuring your processes incorporate expected levels of key controls;
  • Documenting your process flows and controls needed to support US SOX, C-SOX and any other relevant regulations;
  • Using IT to provide 24/7 review of key processes to identify issues (i.e. continuous monitoring);
  • Developing monitoring systems to ensure your controls work to support local governance and reporting needs; and
  • Delivering internal controls training to management and staff.
