Internal audit

Today's global economy demands organisations to demonstrate that they have adequate controls and safeguards in place. Hardy & Company's internal audit services provide you with independent and objective support in the design, implementation and operating effectiveness of your internal controls.

Our Internal audit services include:

  • Identification and assessment of risks
  • Preparation of a risk-based internal audit work plan
  • IT audit where risk levels require it
  • Ad hoc assignments outside of the work plan including fraud investigation, other investigations, stock verification work, Sarbanes-Oxley, post implementation reviews, other special projects and value for money studies
  • Benchmarking your internal audit function against other similar organisations' internal audit function
  • Providing additional internal audit resources to support your existing department

Our internal audit effectiveness and improvement reviews help you to assess and improve the assurance delivered by your internal audit. Our reviews deliver real value through:

  • benchmarking against current best practice,
  • assessing value for money,
  • delivering pragmatic advice on improving the approach to internal audit,
  • providing assurance to Boards and Audit Committees that internal audit is focused and managed effectively.
