Internal Financial Controls lays down the policies and procedures adopted by the company for ensuring the orderly and efficient conduct of its business, including regulatory compliance and prevention and detection of frauds and errors, thereby covering not only the controls over reliable reporting of financial statements (more commonly known as Internal Financial Controls over Financial Reporting (“IFCFR”), but also include all other controls pervasive across the business.

While this requirement was originally applicable to financial statements ending 31 March 2015, considering the lack of guidance, this applicability was deferred and is now effective for the year ending 31 March 2016. It is therefore, suggested that all the companies should re-visit the existing internal controls and strengthens these to ensure that whenever tested, these will not fail.

Keeping this in context, it is our pleasure to inform that Achromic Point along with KPMG is organizing a Full day Seminar on “Internal Financial Control – Beyond Financial Reporting” scheduled in Chennai on 29th July 2016 at Hotel Radisson GRT.
