“In the global financial crisis, methods for increasing the effectiveness of auditing have weighed heavily on the minds of those responsible for corporate governance. When a business is making a healthy profit, irregularities can go undetected; however, when cash flow declines, internal costs and operations are more strongly scrutinised and discrepancies detected more easily.
Effective Auditing for Corporates provides proactive advice from business leaders who have realised effective auditing is fundamental to a company’s financial health, and key to shareholders’ perceptions of the company’s value. Aimed primarily at auditors but of significant important to risk managers, CFOs and consultants, Effective Auditing for Corporates not only covers the financials and regulatory compliance, but the crossover between the roles of internal and external auditor.
This book is an essential guide, both a refresher course for what is required from an internal and external audit and an outline of the processes and structures required to ensure the necessary tasks are accomplished. Areas covered include: general audit management, compliance and corporate auditing, the internal audit and governance audit, and up-to-date coverage of regulation globally.”
