  • Make sure transactions are authorized by a person delegated approval authority when the transactions are consistent with policy and funds are available.

  • Ensure records are routinely reviewed and reconciled, by someone other than the preparer or transactor, to determine that transactions have been properly processed.

  • Make certain that equipment, inventories, cash and other property are secured physically, counted periodically, and compared with item descriptions shown on control records.

  • Provide employees with appropriate training and guidance to ensure they have the knowledge necessary to carry out their job duties, are provided with an appropriate level of direction and supervision, and are aware of the proper channels for reporting suspected improprieties.

  • Document policies and procedures and making them accessible to employees. The documented policies and procedures provide day-to-day guidance to your staff and continuation of duties in the event of prolonged employee absences or turnover.

A financial forecast is an estimate of the future financial status of a business based on the historical financial data. These are used to provide business owners with information about what the financial outlook of the company is likely to be. A financial forecast is likely to be requested by banks and other investors.

A projection takes the financial forecast and adds in a “what-if” scenario. Projections contain hypothetical events and help the business owner to see how things could turn out. We are asked to do these for various reasons such as: buying a business, estimating how a specific event would affect the bottom line, tax consequences of a specific event, evaluating the sustainability of the current business, etc.
