Internal Control Assessments

An integral part of achieving financial success is operating at peak performance. In order to do so, your company must have proper internal controls in place.

Proper internal controls minimize risk. They ensure the reliability of financial reporting and compliance with laws, regulations, policies and procedures. In short, they provide policies and measures to safeguard your assets and improve efficiency and profitability. Who wouldn’t want that?

At DP&C, this is an area in which we specialize. We are able to make meaningful recommendations that result in a significant and immediate impact to the bottom line of your business. Although these services are provided to some degree in the course of audit engagements, we are also able to provide internal control assessments for your business outside the scope of an audit as consulting services.

If you are interested in improving the performance of your business, please contact us to find out more.
