 The purpose of this page is to describe how to create and use the account groups functionality.


On the Account work set you will be able to:

  • Create account groups that are relevant to your compliance initiatives;
  • Designate account groups as significant for compliance tracking and reporting;
  • Document the reason for designating an account group as significant;
  • Define financial assertions relevant to your account group.

Accounts and assertions are assigned to:

-Subprocess: Representing which accounts/assertions should be covered by the controls.

-Controls: Representing the accounts that are covered by the actual controls.

-Risks: If the company also manages by risk.
