KPMG's Sarbanes Oxley Advisory Services (SOAS) can help an organization with the implementation and maintenance of sustainable SOX 404 compliance programs through readiness assessments, through documentation and testing assistance and through sustainability assessments. In each of these services KPMG firms' professionals work closely with clients to establish compliance programs, transfer knowledge and provide training to support a successful SOX 404 compliance program.
KPMG’s SOAS services can be tailored to individual client needs through readiness assessments, through documentation and testing assistance and through sustainability assessments.
For each of these services, KPMG takes a risk-based approach to identify the internal controls over financial reporting risks (ICFR) that the organization either has in place, or needs, to address its key financial reporting risks and to support the implementation of its chosen control framework (e.g. COSO).
SOAS projects for our member firms’ clients are based upon our global SOAS methodology and supplemental materials — e.g. the point of view (POV) documents that have been created as a result of the SEC’s Interpretive Guidance for management. SOAS projects are delivered by our Internal Audit Risk & Compliance Services (IARCS) personnel, supported by appropriate subject matter professionals, throughout the KPMG network.
