COMPLIANCE AUDIT MANAGEMENT

Report Creation

The most innovative Audit Management Software launched post introduction of NOCLAR. It enables auditor manage entire audit cycle with inbuilt Regulatory Intelligence detailing Compliance Obligations; thus increasing their efficiency and effectiveness while reducing overall cost of audits.

COMPLIANCE AUDIT MANAGEMENT SYSTEM

In recent times, responsibilities on Corporate Board to ensure compliance with applicable legislations has increased multifold globally. Due to lack of in depth knowledge within the organisation, businesses are increasingly seeking endorsement of external legal experts on their compliance adherence. Effectively, it leads to more audits for the audit and consulting partners whether as part of statutory audits or independently.

During same period, International Federation of Accountants (IFAC) has increased responsibilities of Professional Accountants and Auditors globally to abide by the Code of Ethics for Professional Accountants issued by Accounting Professional & Ethical Standards Board (APESB) and included “Responding to Non-Compliance with Laws & Regulations” framework, also known as “NOCLAR. This effectively includes compliance audit as part of statutory audits.

In both above scenarios, it becomes imperative for Audit, Accounting and Consulting professionals to become fully aware of all applicable laws on their client business and create robust internal processes for compliance audits.

CHALLENGES DURING REGULATORY AUDITS
