Investor confidence is a critical concern for boards. Securities legislation requiring CEO and CFO certifications of effective internal controls over financial reporting, accounting standards (IFRS) with enhanced disclosures, are putting pressure on boards and management team to strengthen financial compliance activities. Staying up to date is an important test of a board’s quality and competence.
The personnel at Issues Central, Inc. are experts in the design, implementation and validation of effective internal controls and disclosures. Using COSO 2013 for design and validation of operating effectiveness of internal controls over financial reporting, we help your team implement best practices in financial disclosure.
For best practices in disclosure controls and procedures, there are no legal framework requirements. Our team has developed best practices to assure that your company is in compliance with key disclosure policy and procedures and requirements. We have been helping public company CEOs and CFOs since the legislation was implemented, first in the US in 2002 and in Canada since 2008.
We advise board members and senior officers of North American listed public companies on best practices in implementation of Risk Management and Internal Controls to have reasonable assurance of compliance with key securities regulations. We make sure our clients are up to date with the latest trends and requirements in today’s rapidly changing environment.
We provide consulting services, workshops and briefings in these areas of expertise:
