Doing Internal Audits and Investigations in India

In a glo­ba­li­zed en­viron­ment, its im­port­ant to mo­ni­tor the ope­ra­ti­ons of sub­si­dia­ries and busi­ness part­ners world­wide. Mo­ni­to­ring ope­ra­ti­ons will also in­clude ha­ving in­de­pen­dent au­dits to va­li­date if the po­li­cies, pro­ce­du­res and in­ter­nal con­trols are im­ple­men­ted ac­cor­ding glo­bal/re­gio­nal gui­de­lines.

While these au­dits ap­pear to be ge­ne­ric in na­ture, they can help to identfy gaps and in­con­sis­ten­cies in the busi­ness pro­cess and tran­sac­tions and, the­reby, re­duce the th­reats of po­ten­tial white col­lar crime.

With in­or­ga­nic growth si­ze­ably contri­bu­ting to glo­bal ex­pan­si­ons, these au­dits are ne­cessary check points to eva­luate the exis­tence of po­ten­tial frau­du­lent risks.

For all en­ter­pri­ses in­ves­ti­ga­ti­ons are a si­tua­tion of cri­sis. This even be­co­mes more dif­fi­cult if this hap­pens in for­eign coun­tries. In this si­tua­tion it is es­sen­tial to con­sider lo­cal re­gu­la­ti­ons, laws and cul­tu­ral dif­fe­ren­ces. These au­dits aim to preempt broa­der con­trol is­sues for ap­pro­priate ma­nage­ment ac­tion and over­sight.

To deal with this chal­lenge it is of ad­van­tage if you have a part­ner who is able to com­bine for­eign with home coun­try ex­pe­ri­ence. The Ne­xia Net­work is ex­pe­ri­en­ced to con­duct in­ter­nal au­dits and in­ves­ti­ga­ti­ons in In­dia with a prac­ticed ap­proach.
