Accounting and Internal Control for Micro and Small Enterprises. With Internal Control there are rules and procedures implemented by a company to ensure the integrity of financial and accounting information, promote accountability and prevent fraud. These are categorize into two: Preventive and Detective and Corrective. Preventive deter the errors or fraud from happening in the first place; it’s the first line of defense. Detective and Corrective backup procedures that are designed to catch items or events that have been missed by the first line of defense.

Cash Management. Importance of cash budgeting:

• Helps avoid cash shortage and maximize surplus
• Acts as a detective control (through variance analysis)

Inventory Controls. Mandate ending inventory count everyday and must do random inventory count check.

Cash Fraud. Lapping means concealing theft of cash by covering up the initial cash shortage with the next cash receipt. Prevent this from happening by doing timely deposit of cash random cash count. Skimming means taking cash “off the top” of the daily receipts of a business and officially reporting a lower total. Ways to prevent this is by applying sales and inventory reconciliation.

Reconciliation – verifying the processing or recording of transactions to ensure that all transactions are valid, properly authorized and properly recorded on a timely basis
