Having an internal audit function which is effective, dynamic and capable of addressing future challenges is fundamental to a healthy organisation. Internal audit is well placed to be the catalyst for facilitating positive change, learning, ethics and sustainability – thereby enhancing and protecting the strategic vision and values of the business, customers and shareholders. If you’re looking to set up or enhance your internal audit function, partnering with Mazars provides you with a flexible, tailored and effective risk-based approach.
A DEEP UNDERSTANDING OF INTERNAL AUDIT AND HOW IT ADDS VALUE TO THE BUSINESS
We understand the importance of building an effective internal audit function. We also understand that the challenges of internal audit are constantly increasing: meeting several demands from different parts of the business, dealing with ever-changing regulatory landscape, a lack of internal audit resource – and all while trying to deliver the existing internal audit plan. In the context of organisation complexity, change and growth, you should expect an internal audit function to be able to provide proactive assurance, insight and advice.
We have significant experience in helping organisations build a successful internal audit function – part of this success is the result of the deep subject matter expertise we bring, rooted in the multiple industries we serve. In addition, we have experts in technology and compliance that can address the risks imposed by regulatory change and business innovation. We also advise on the organisation’s governance, risk management, compliance and internal controls and assist senior management and boards, and especially audit committees with their respective responsibilities.
A FRIENDLY, EXPERIENCED TEAM TO HELP YOU ACHIEVE GOALS
Whether you are considering outsourcing the entire internal audit function, a co‑sourcing arrangement, or require assistance to deliver ad hoc assignments, we can help you achieve your governance and risk management objectives.
At Mazars, our approach is tailored to each individual client and based on four main pillars of the internal audit function: leadership, innovation, quality and resources.
