What is SOX Compliance?

The Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX) is a U.S. law enacted in 2002 and its primary goal is to protect investors by improving the accuracy and reliability of corporate disclosures in financial statements and other documents provided by public companies.

SOX compliance involves adhering to a set of requirements designed to ensure the integrity of financial reporting. Key aspects include:

  • Corporate Responsibility: Senior executives must certify the accuracy of financial reports and accept accountability for any misrepresentations.

  • Enhanced Financial Disclosures: Companies are required to provide comprehensive and clear financial statements.

  • Internal Controls: Companies must establish robust internal controls for financial reporting and regularly assess their effectiveness, including controls to prevent fraud and ensure financial operations are conducted as represented.

  • Auditor Independence: The law sets stricter rules for auditors to ensure their independence from the companies they audit, aiming to prevent conflicts of interest.

SOX compliance is mandatory for all public companies in the U.S. and international companies that have registered equity or debt securities with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).
