Burbank, CA (PRWEB) November 23, 2009
A recent trend in audits, prompted by high profile accounting scandals, has been an increased focus on internal control procedures, which aim to ensure the completeness, accuracy and validity of records of accounts. This emphasis on the internal control environment is now a mandatory component of the financial audit of SEC reporting and listed companies, under the auditing standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board, a non-profit corporation organized by the Sarbanes-Oxley Act.
PHC will make recommendations on how to implement new structures for efficiency and effectiveness. The recommendations will be based on the continuing commitment of management to assess the operating effectiveness of its internal controls. It is anticipated that internal controls that are assessed by PHC as effective will reduce the amount of 'substantive' work for Zuma’s auditor and directly result in a more efficient and cost effective financial audit for Zuma.
Zuma is currently preparing for the audit of its financial statements.
PHC was organized in 1980 by the merger of Perry & Hay and Kenneth T. Chu & Associates. PHC provides quality accounting, auditing, tax, consulting, and technology services to closely held businesses and offers financial expertise and experience to clients for all their financial dealings. PHC is a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants and is a CPA firm dedicated to maintaining the highest quality standards in their practice.
