Internal control, SOX, J-SOX assessments and documentation

The quality of the internal control environment over the business and financial processes have become a top priority in large organizations because they see internal control as a driver of quality in everything they do and a strong mitigation tool against risks of material errors and frauds.

Also, regulators and business partners do expect and require strong and efficient internal controls. Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) Section 404 and 302 requirements are now a required component of annual assurance plans by organisations that are Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) registered.

Outside the US, experience of SOX planning and implementation is often in short supply, especially with restraints on management time and costs of implementation. Mazars helps organisations comply with SOX and J-SOX. Our team can take on as much or as little of your SOX project as you need. We provide complete compliance departments, interim consultancy or help with SOX testing. We also provide specialist technical assistance in areas such as IT.

Our outsourcing and co-outsourcing services include:

  • Project management
  • Technical advisory
  • Manpower substitution
