Internal Audit Services

A cornerstone of strong governance, internal auditing bridges the gap between management and the Board, assesses the ethical climate and the effectiveness and efficiency of operations, and serves as an organization’s safety net for compliance with rules, regulations, and overall best business practices.

If your internal audit resources are stretched, Angela Byrne CMA & Associates Inc. can help you fill the gap by:

  • facilitating control risk assessments
  • developing internal audit plans and executing audits

Our services include:

  • project management leadership

International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS)

Achieving compliance with the new International Financial Reporting Standards will challenge your company. Not only will you need specific expert knowledge related to the differences in generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) and IFRS, you will also need strong project management, risk management and change control capacity. Finding all this within your existing internal resources may not be possible. Even if you do have the capacity in the organization you will be diverting valuable resources from other pressing issues and the day-to-day business.

Lessons learned from countries that have already implemented IFRS tell us that strong project management leadership is key to your success. Technical accounting is not enough to get you through – it will be the processes, systems, people and approach that will make it work.

Angela Byrne Consulting Inc. can help by providing:

  • strong project management leadership that will keep all the pieces of this complex project on track
  • a strategic perspective that identifies financial, system and organizational impacts
  • identification of resources required at different stages of the project and matching resources to tasks
  • specification of training requirements for internal staff
  • integration of the IFRS project with risk management systems
  • a comprehensive approach to the IFRS project with disciplined change management approach including building leadership, cascading ownership and facilitating bottom-up and top-down communication
