Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX)


Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX) 404

To protect shareholders & the general public from corporate fraud and accounting errors, the US Congress in 2002, passed a financial reporting system called Sarbanes-Oxley Act Section 404 (SOX Section 404). Under this section, all the publicly traded companies are required to test, maintain and document all the internal controls and procedures in the financial report to ensure their work effectiveness and improve corporate disclosures.

To successfully implement the 404 compliance process or internal audits by addressing the compliance challenges, organizations often take the help of the experts in the field.
