An effective, insightful internal audit function provides confidence to leaders that their organisations can meet the demands of changing environments. Managing risk, monitoring controls, enhancing security and improving corporate governance are core internal audit responsibilities. Organisations are increasingly leveraging internal audit as a strategic resource, recognising that internal auditors’ broad and deep perspective of operations, risks and potential opportunities can help inform business decision-making. QA’s Internal Audit consultants work with audit executives, management and audit committees at companies of virtually any size, public or private, to assist them with their internal audit activities. This can include starting and running the activity for them on a fully outsourced basis or working with an existing internal audit function to supplement their team when they lack adequate staff or skills. QA helps CFOs and financial executives strengthen their finance function and manage complex accounting issues, including non-routine situations such as financial restatements. In addition, QA’s Internal Audit team helps clients assess their fraud risks and implement solutions to better manage these risks and lead investigations into financial irregularities.
