Internal Financial Controls (IFC)

The Companies Act, 1956 has been replaced by the Companies Act, 2013. The new Act has cast many new reporting requirements on the statutory auditors of companies. One of these requirements relate to ‘Reporting on Internal Financial Controls’ under Section 143(3)(i) of the Companies Act, 2013 which requires the auditor to state in his report whether the company has adequate internal financial controls system in place and the operating effectiveness of such controls.

The section has cast onerous responsibilities on the statutory auditors because various audit principles and audit procedures for audit of financial statements as per the auditing standards issued by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI) do not cover situations where the auditors are required to express opinion of effectiveness of internal controls. ICAI therefore needed to come out with appropriate guidance on this section in the form of a publication that would include guidance on various aspects relating to such reporting on Internal Financial Controls.
