Revenue and cash receipts are two critical areas that require strong controls to prevent intentional fraud or unintentional misstatements. While there is well-publicized fraud in these areas in larger companies, it also occurs, and can even be more likely to occur, in smaller businesses and not-forprofit entities. A sound system of internal control is needed to help prevent fraudulent activities and reporting related to the revenue and cash receipts cycle. It is crucial that an internal control system is tailored to the unique needs of each organization with a dedicated focus on areas posing the greatest risk; this course is designed to help you to do this.
