Streamline SOX requirements with proven processes and experienced professionals
Getting ready to go public is a big milestone. But amid all the planning and decision-making, compliance issues can be overlooked. Meeting the requirements of Section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX) is no small undertaking.
As you near the initial public offering (IPO) stage, Wipfli can help make sure your organization is prepared for the next step.
Our team creates a seamless process by identifying your key business processes related to controls over financial reporting, determining the controls and systems supporting the business processes and then testing the effectiveness of the controls.
We then turn SOX program data into internal control knowledge and provide the resources needed to fill technical and capacity resource gaps.
SOX compliance is not something that can be turned on like a switch. The sooner you start building compliance activities into your forecasts and strategic plans, the easier it will be on your team.
