Preparing your company to go public? Checking your readiness for SOX 404 compliance comes first!
WHY YOU NEED TO ASSESS YOUR SOX READINESS
We understand change is constant and inevitable. We also understand that there are some things that will NEVER change. One of those things is the fact that addressing your SOX readiness now will improve your SOX 404 compliance programs when you need them, ultimately making your IPO journey easier.
When you commit to assessing your SOX readiness it becomes clear that you care not only about your stakeholders, but also about your long-term success.
Oftentimes companies looking to go public only see SOX compliance as a burden, but we stress – achieving SOX 404 compliance can be a panacea for avoiding difficulties that may arise.
Achieving SOX 404 is like forging a sword. You hit the sword over and over to hone it, remove impurities, and refine its shape until you have the perfect sword customized for your needs. That is how it works for SOX 404 compliance. It is a process that needs time, a growth mindset, great attention to detail, and the drive to improve despite deficiencies.
To achieve SOX 404 compliance, you must first check if you’re ready, and then refine the parts of your internal controls that need improvement. As to the question of how? Well, with A2Q2 as your partner, you will have all the support you need!
