Dimitris N. Chorafas defines both auditing and internal control, and explains the value of internal control, why it must be audited, and how it can be most effectively achieved. He addresses top management's accountability for internal control and uses case studies to demonstrate the application of such systems, as well as the importance of sound analysis of the information gathered. Based on an extensive research project in the UK, US, and continental Europe, this book is an invaluable source of practical advice for implementing internal control systems and making existing systems more efficient.
