The internal audit – what is it and why is it important?
Maintaining the most important files in order is one of the phases of the accounts payable process. Other steps include receiving vendor invoices and uploading them into an automated financial or accounts payable system, checking and matching invoices, sending for approval, and processing payments. In order to ensure a correct verification of payments, you can rely on an accounts payable audit.
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
Duplicate payments are easy to occur when using manual AP procedures. This is why, many companies nowadays use automated software to make accounts payable entries. Our tool relies on Artificial Intelligence which is capable of doing the same work faster and more accurate.
There are several aspects that an internal audit relies on. These are:
- the assessment of risk management procedures which can rely on various departments in the company;
- signaling inconsistencies between the procedures implemented by the company and those imposed by the laws;
- 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.
