Benefits of Accounting Audit

Being the accounting audit a process that analyzes a company's financial situation and validates the accuracy of accounting records is advantageous because, in addition to validating information, it certifies administrators that internal controls are being carried out efficiently and effectively. Or, if not, suggest improvements.

It is worth remembering that accounting audit it can be carried out not only in companies that comply with the obligation, but also in small companies, as it identifies fraud and irregularities in administration. In case of non-obligation, the decision to carry out a accounting audit is up to the management of the company.
