Internal Audit Services
Having an internal audit function is now a mandatory requirement, either comply or explain, for every listed company according to the Corporate Governance Code (CG Code) as required by HK Stock Exchange. Internal audit function is a significant independent resource in assisting the audit committee of a listed company in achieving good corporate governance and to exercise its oversight responsibility to ensure the effectiveness of the organisation’s internal control system. Internal audit function should also be adequately resourced to ensure having the necessary skills and capabilities in carrying out both the ad-hoc and planned internal audit review activities.
