Dealing with the mandates of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act has proved something of a scramble for public companies.

And not just US companies, because the 1,400 non-US SEC registrants have to comply, and so do the thousands of foreign subs of US registrants. In the course of assisting with hundreds of section 404 readiness and other Sarbanes-Oxley-related projects, we have learned numerous lessons and gained valuable insights. The Deloitte (USA) publication (PDF 517k) reveals Deloitte's point of view on Sarbanes-Oxley compliance. Compliance is just one step on the bridge to excellence. Corporate leaders who embrace the "spirit of the law" – strong ethics, good governance, reliable reporting – can get a re-energized company and reassured investors.
