Internal Financial Controls Services

Internal Financial Controls Services

The 2013 Companies Act marks a major step towards raising the bar on corporate governance in India. The Companies Act has re-emphasised the importance of a robust internal controls environment by introducing the term ‘Internal Financial Controls’, and by casting specific responsibilities on the Board, Audit committee, Management as well as the Auditors.

KPMG’s Internal Financial Controls Framework

KPMG's Internal Financial Controls Framework (IFC) has been developed keeping in mind the requirements of the Companies Act, 2013. This framework focuses on financial controls’ effectiveness through a continuous cycle of self-assessment and independent credence based on various internal financial control elements.

KPMG's Internal Financial Controls Framework considers a holistic approach by focusing on two levels i.e.

  • Entity level
  • Process level

The framework and approach is in alignment with globally accepted guidelines such as COSO 2013.
