Sarbanes-Oxley Compliance - Making Your Company More Accessible

The U.S. federal Sarbanes-Oxley Act was created to protect investors by improving the accuracy and reliability of corporate disclosures. The act covers issues such as establishing a public company accounting oversight board, auditor independence, corporate responsibility and enhanced financial disclosure. The act came after a series of financial scandals, including those affecting Enron and WorldCom.

Sarbanes-Oxley compliance may be difficult for your company to adhere to at first, but in the long run it can be beneficial for you and your employees. Sarbanes-Oxley compliance will make your company’s finances more transparent and easier to navigate, as well as easier to tell when things are not right.

In order to achieve Sarbanes-Oxley compliance a company must have a system where information is accessible and manageable. Often times companies lose track of important information and may be unaware of its whereabouts. This information is very important and may be contained in documents that have been lost in email or even inside the hard drives of company equipment.
