Internal Audit

Internal audit services can be used throughout a company’s operations. The primary purpose of internal audit services is to help identify and assess operational, financial and compliance risks that a company faces, and then identify and assess the internal controls in place to mitigate those risks. Internal audit services involve both process and system reviews.

Lease Accounting Services

The new lease accounting guidance presents an opportunity to proactively implement new processes and policies while simultaneously taking inventory of your company’s lease populations, in order to assess the impact on future financial reporting.

Services include data extraction, process mapping, internal controls, change management, software advisory, software readiness, financial impact modeling, and impact analysis on debt covenant calculations.

Service Organization Control (SOC Reports)

Service organizations that provide key third-party outsourcing services often need to be accountable to the clients they serve. These organizations include claims processors, application service providers, benefits administrators, payroll companies, data centers, and many others. System and Organization Control Reports (SOC 1, SOC 2, SOC 3 reports) provide three new reporting vehicles developed for service organizations to respond to demands for uniform reporting and review—expanding service organizations’ ability to report on financial controls, non-financial controls and, with SOC 3, become certified trusted system service organizations.
