Meet your legal and regulatory obligations with SOX 404 attestations


Organizations of all sizes face similar challenges to assure the public that they are preparing financial statements and recording transactions in an accurate, fair, and ethical manner, using established control procedures that include controls associated with information technology. In addition to traditional audit and review services of internal controls as they relate to FDICIA, BerryDunn provides a wide range of other forms of information assurance, including Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) 404 attestation services. 

Depending on your specific needs, we offer risk assessments in conjunction with the financial statement audit, and we can provide an objective evaluation of:

  • The control environment such as the "tone at the top"
  • The internal audit function
  • IT general controls
  • Communication and monitoring

By documenting processes for transactions and performing "walk-throughs"—following transactions through the system—we can help you ensure they are functioning as intended. We also test significant controls to evaluate the design and operating effectiveness of key controls, and review controls with your leadership team, giving you the information you need to maintain security and compliance.
