Inaccurate Financial Reporting

2011 - 09 - 29

Beside problems in business operations, bad internal controls also cause inaccuracy and oversight in financial reporting.

除了企業營運上的種種問題之外,內控不好也會造成企業提出的財務報告容易不實、有疏漏,這一點其實非常容易理解,因為從上述的A、B、C的慘痛經驗可以看出一些端倪,也就是問題都出在於資訊流通上出了差池,表示內控不好的話,訂單、契約、設計圖可能再溝通上會出問題,那麼企業內的帳冊、財務報表、會計表單又何嘗不會出錯?有心舞弊之人更容易從這些表單下手!本書第一章的博達案與恩龍案就是各位讀者的活教材。
