为什么要为公司增加内部审计功能?

The creation of an 内部审计 function is often viewed as a luxury by many companies, 而且他们负担不起. But the truth is that an internal audit is actually a function most companies cannot afford not to have.

1. 独立评估.

An internal audit function provides independent assessments for key processes and systems (and transactions) within a company. Since internal audit functions typically report to the audit committee of the board of directors, this helps to ensure that the audit committee and board as a whole has the information necessary to perform their roles effectively. It is often difficult for the audit committee to have its “feet on the ground” within a company. Internal audit is often the eyes and ears for the audit committee on a day-to-day basis.

2. 改善控制环境.

With an effective internal audit function participating in the monitoring of financial, 公司的运营和合规领域, 全面改善防控环境. If process owners don’t believe their activities will be reviewed by internal audit, they may be less motivated to ensure that all related internal control activities are performed in accordance with senior management and Board directives. Furthermore, an internal audit function is often a deterrent for fraudulent activities.

3. 人才来源.

最后, internal auditors typically review all key processes on a frequent basis and nonkey processes on a less frequent basis. As such, auditors develop detailed knowledge on how key processes and systems operate. 仅基于这一点, an internal audit function typically serves as an excellent talent pool from which key positions within the company may be filled. 更重要的是,内部审计师通常会形成一种“过程”的心态. This enables them to see the big picture of how processes and systems work together, 让他们看到他们所做的对整个公司有什么好处. This should make them more valuable to the company in roles after they leave the IA function.

这些只是利用经验的几个好处, 内部审计功能完善. 大多数成功的公司都有内部审计职能. 事实上, the New York Stock Exchange requires listed companies to have an internal audit function, 纳斯达克最近也在讨论增加类似要求的想法.

There are a variety of ways to create an internal audit function — staffed entirely with internal resources, 由内部和外部专业人员组成, 或者完全外包给专业服务公司. 不管你如何创造它,你的公司都会从中受益.
