Course Description

Does the idea of an audit make your finance team anxious? If so, they're not alone. But you can alleviate your finance team's concerns through a culture of auditability, accountability, and preparation.

Auditability refers to the visibility your company provides into details of specific transactions. Accountability establishes who is responsible for initiating, reviewing, approving, and processing them.

Automation tools can help ensure your company gathers and maintains information auditors are likely to ask for, all in real time. By preparing your finance team in advance with clear, accurate, and timely information, you can ensure an audit is a success—even if it's a surprise.

  • Identify the types of information internal and external auditors typically request
  • Recognize how to use automation to ensure your company's financial information is auditable
  • Identify which aspects of preparing for audits finance teams most often overlook
  • Discover how to prepare your finance team for a successful audit
