In order to function properly, a company must set in place protocols that ensure everybody respects their duties and work in accordance with pre-established procedures. In order to ensure these are complied with, internal audits can be performed in order to verify the core aspects of each business. Nowadays, special software that measures performance indicators and that a company’s risk management, governance, and controls are operating at the required parameters.

The internal audit – what is it and why is it important?

An internal audit is a verification of a company’s internal controls, corporate governance, and accounting procedures, therefore, it encompasses multiple aspects of a business. It ensures correct compliance with the laws and regulations, which is why making sure these are respected is one of the main aspects to consider when having a business.

An internal audit has the important role of offering an independent measurement of a company’s risk management governance and can propose various actions that help it meet the imposed regulations. It can also offer the management the right tools to obtain operational efficiency by identifying the underlying issues.

If until now the verification of all these aspects was a time-consuming procedure, now, an internal audit software can handle them much faster.

From an accounting point of view, we can propose an accounts payable audit in order to make sure all invoicing methods are respected in accordance with the current standards.

Aspects covered by an internal audit

There are several aspects that an internal audit relies on. These are:
  1.  the assessment of risk management procedures which can rely on various departments in the company;
  2. signaling inconsistencies between the procedures implemented by the company and those imposed by the laws;
  3. helping the management in improving internal controls in the business.

Internal audits play one of the most important roles in protecting the company against various threats such as fraud, financial losses, and abuse.

If normally performing such a task requires more auditors and a few days to be completed, with the help of an internal audit software, the entire process will need no more human factor and will be handled much faster depending on the size of the business.
