(PRWEB) November 18, 2005
ARINSO International (Euronext Brussels: ARIN), a leading provider of HR services, announced today that it has completed its SAS 70 Type II audit for the HR outsourcing and payroll services under the responsibility of its Belgian Service Center.
Developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), SAS 70 (Statement on Auditing Standards No. 70, Service Organizations) is the standard used to examine and report on the design and operating effectiveness of a service organization's internal controls.
“We are very pleased with the results of our SAS 70 audit conducted by KPMG,” said Jo Leclère, Director of Global Compliance ARINSO International. “In addition to our expectation that this will help clients to save time and money on audits, we have experienced that the SAS 70 audit process has helped ARINSO in its strive for rendering high quality services efficiently to its clients.”
Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) and similar regulations require corporations to audit internal controls of their suppliers, including those that provide HR outsourcing and payroll services. By undergoing the SAS 70 audit, ARINSO can provide its HR outsourcing clients with an audit report on payroll processing controls that facilitates compliance with these regulations.
“We continue to commit to the SAS 70 audit process”, continued Leclère. “By the end of 2006 we plan to have a worldwide SAS 70 examination of our Service Centers completed. This will be supported by the global roll-out of euHReka®, an HR and Payroll Services Platform for global employers, which has been designed to fully support regulatory compliance requirements”.
