The Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, or SOX, made some tremendous changes to federal law. If your company is publicly owned, managed, or is a public accounting firm, this act applies to your business, and it’s critical that you stay compliant. By working with you to streamline your technological needs and to make sure your data is properly compiled, we can help you meet your goals and to stay in compliance with the law.
One of the major changes SOX made to the business world was by imposing restrictions on how companies can compile and present their financial data. Among other parts of the legislation, it requires that senior executives take personal accountability for the accuracy and completeness of the company’s financial reports. It’s not just about making sure there is someone to blame, however. Federal law requires being in compliance with SOX, and if audits show you aren’t compliant, there can be severe legal consequences.
