What Is The Sarbanes Oxley Act?

The Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX) was enacted by the U.S. Congress in 2002 in response to a series of accounting scandals, including the Enron scandal. The Sarbanes-Oxley Act mandates new or enhanced accounting requirements for public companies in the United States. Among the key provisions of the law are as follows:

  • The disclosure of more detailed financial information must be enhanced, and senior executives must certify that the information is accurate.
  • Public company audits require independent accounting firms, and these firms cannot perform certain non-audit services for their audit clients.
  • A public company‘s internal controls must be established and maintained, and senior executives must certify their effectiveness.
  • By improving transparency and accountability in financial reporting, the Sarbanes-Oxley Act restores investor confidence in financial markets. In the United States, the law has impacted the way public companies and accounting firms operate, and it has also influenced corporate governance practices abroad.

    What Is SOX Compliance?

    Public companies and their accounting firms ensure compliance with the Sarbanes-Oxley Act by complying with Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) requirements.
