SOX 404 Compliance
Section 404 is the most complicated, most contested, and most expensive to implement of all the Sarbanes Oxley Act sections for compliance. All public company annual financial reports must include an Internal Control Report stating that management is responsible for an adequate internal control structure, and an assessment by management of the effectiveness of the control structure. Amaren Group’s team of former Big-4 auditors can perform control assessments to help you identify and remediate gaps in your controls and can assist you with the extensive documentation requirements of SOX 404.
Complying with local, state, and federal laws and regulations is necessary for any business. Bodies of government have placed parameters which businesses must operate within. Amaren focuses on eliminating these liabilities from your procedures to ensure compliant, legal business practices.
Permitting & Licensing
Conducting business is considered to be a privilege granted by governing bodies. To be granted these privileges, businesses must be licensed and permitted to conduct their specific activities. Amaren seeks to alleviate clients’ stresses of acquiring these licenses and permits.
Writing applications is often a nuanced and tedious task. In addition, applying for certain business privileges can be a competitive process. Amaren specializes in facilitating the application process and writing content.
