Seminar Summary:

Undoubtably Section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley legislation has had the most impact on companies, public accounting firms and investors. This section requires management and the external auditor to report on the adequacy of the company's internal control on financial reporting (ICFR). This is the most costly aspect of the legislation for companies to implement, as documenting and testing important financial manual and automated controls requires enormous effort. Ten years plus after initial implementation, companies are still evaluating new ways to synergize their SOX 404 process design and testing. (see full course description)

Why Should you Attend

Sarbanes-Oxley is one of the most significant pieces of legislation that has been passed related to internal controls over financial reporting. SOX Section 404 is the most laborsome and critical component of the act for most companies. The ability to have a continual process improvement initiative to take a fresh look at controls and procedures is critical to maintaining an effective ICFR process. COSO 2013 has increased the focus on this initiative.


The Sarbanes-Oxley legislation was passed in 2002 post the issue that occurred in corporate America around improprieties in financial reporting. The legislation is intended to provide transparent financial reporting to investors and shareholders. The implementation process has evolved significantly since the initial years of SOX. The change from Auditing Standard 2 to Auditing Standard 5 lifted some of the detailed obligations companies were required to comply with. However, with the impetus of COSO 2013, some believe the pendulum is swinging back in the other direction. SOX is a topic that company management must stay fully abreast and aware of in order to synergize their overall processes.
