Internal Audit Services in Malaysia
In general, accounting and auditing are both essential branches in business finance. Accounting is defined as the systematic process of recording and presenting the company financial data while financial auditing is defined as the process of reviewing an organization’s financial records to determine if they are accurate and compliance with laws and regulations.
What is Internal Audit Service?
Auditors are always the people that the company’s procedures comply with laws. They are the extra pairs of eyes that refine the accounting efficiency with the establishment of both risk management and compliance management.
As the name implies, external auditors come from outside a company while internal auditors are permanent staff responsible for ongoing review of financial operations and processes. Internal auditing is not only about establishing compliance measurement but also involve advising the senior management and Board of Directors (or other similar oversight group) on how to better execute their roles and responsibilities. In other words, internal auditors are important to an organisation to evaluate the effectiveness of the organization and protect the organization against risk.
