Companies that have the obligation to audit the financial statements, as well as those who
wish to do so on their own initiative, have the obligation to set up an internal audit service. Internal
auditors may have a considerable influence on the operational efficiency and effectiveness of the entity,
as well as on treasury and profit flows. Internal auditors carry out an important part of financial audit
work, similar to those performed by independent external auditors. Many of the concepts and methods
of financial audit also apply to internal audit audits. Internal auditors devote their entire working time
to a single economic entity. Consequently, their knowledge of the entity's operations and internal control
mechanisms are far more profound than those obtained by external financial auditors. Internal audit
includes the examination and assessment of the adequacy and effectiveness of the entity's internal
control system, as well as the assessment of the quality of the tasks assigned to each employee.
