Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002
The Section 404 provisions of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 continue to provide challenges to companies as they figure out how to comply with requirements to assess the effectiveness of internal financial controls. Section 404 imposes the need to analyze and evaluate the quality of the system used to report financial results.

Our experienced 404 team can help you with initial assessments, specific phases of the process or outsourcing staff. We also can take a lead role in the compliance process.
