Internal Audit

Key Processes Review

We review your business to ensure you have the controls in place to minimise risk and protect your assets. We ensure you comply with your regulatory obligations and mitigate the risk of fraud, workplace accidents, cashflow problems or other internal and external threats.

We help you create documentation that makes it easy for new employees to understand and comply with your risk minimization practices. These systems also make your business easier to sell, insure, finance and attract investment in.

Our key processes review includes two key components:


Financial Processes Review

We carry out a thorough review of your financial processes to understand your current risks and the controls you have in place to manage them. We then design and document the following 4 key processes to ensure your business is as financially secure as possible:

  • Purchase to pay
  • Order to cash
  • Financial close
  • Payroll


Business Processes Review

We analyse your business to understand the overall commercial risks you face. We then design and document a system to minimize and control your risk in the following 5 areas.

  • Procurement
  • Production / manufacturing
  • Distribution
  • Sales
