Financial Controls
Financial controls are the foundation of any
good business. They are the rock upon which
successful businesses are built. A growing
business should mimic good practices, and we can

Growing companies seldom have time or resources
to establish documented accounting policies and
procedures. We can help ease the burden with
writing effective accounting policies and
procedures manuals. Having such policies and
procedures helps a company safeguard assets,
improve reporting accuracy, increase
efficiencies and achieve business objectives.
Documentation also helps to reinforce good
habits and facilitate staff training and
development.  Further, companies that are
subject to SOX 404 compliance will find having
documented procedures indispensable for auditors
and other key stakeholders.

"How effective are my financial controls? Which
areas are weakest and present the greatest risks
to the company?" a CFO may ask.  He is up at
night worried, "Are my accounting processes on
par with those of peers?" The CFO has spent much
of his time with investors pitching the merits
of the company and has had little time to
address such issues. Yet is he aware of the
financial reporting risks that lurk beneath the
surface? One major lapse and his credibility can
go up in smoke and with it the support of
potential investor money.

The risk of internal controls failures is
particularly acute for fast growing companies.
Such companies are most vulnerable to controls
lapses because expansion creates complexity.
here are simply more moving parts, higher
transaction volume
, more technology and greater
deployment of assets to contend with. Fast
growing companies stand to gain the most from
controls reviews, because the control
environment of these companies often change
dramatically and usually for the worst. Frequent
reviews can help identify any deterioration of
controls that can cause havoc and halt growth

deep, and laid the foundation on a rock: and when
the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon
that house, and could not shake it: for it was
founded upon a rock." - Luke 6:48, KJV Bible
