Internal audit

Internal audit, a tool for improvement

The purpose of the internal audit function is to regularly assess the adequacy of internal control and its effectiveness. It forms an independent function within the organisation for the periodic evaluation of operations, as well as an advisory activity designed to create value and improve activities.

Internal audit should be seen as an activity designed to assist the company in achieving its objectives through a methodology designed to evaluate and improve the effectiveness of risk management, controls, corporate governance processes and customer satisfaction.

A broad range of services

ARCAD offers a broad range of services, from assistance to the complete outsourcing of the internal audit function :

The choice of one audit approach over another depends on the risks faced by the company, the audit objectives and the resources available to the organisation. Our internal audit approach takes into account these different elements in order to be adjusted to the needs of each client.

The recourse to an external expert provides many advantages, not only in terms of cost, but also in terms of expertise regarding local legal and regulatory requirements.

Permanent Internal Audit

As a third line of defence, internal audit should regularly and independently assess the adequacy of internal control.
The permanent nature of theinternal audit function is key. Internal audits must be carried out on a regular basis and during the year under review, even if an external expert is appointed.
