The standard for Internal Audit is established by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI). According to the ICAI, Internal Audit is an independent Risk Management Function that assists an organization's management. Unlike the External or Statutory Audit, this audit is carried out internally at the management's request. MMA boasts a team of experienced and accredited auditors with over 10 years of experience in conducting various types of audits.
Through Internal Audit, organizations can identify loopholes and gaps in the implementation of their policies and procedures in various day-to-day functions. These audits can cover areas such as Finance, Risk, and Statutory compliance. The Internal Audit also evaluates internal controls and facilitates the implementation of best industry practices to achieve corporate objectives.
