In basic terms, financial controls refer to management techniques that focus on maximizing return on investment and mitigating risk. In addition to protecting against fraud, financial controls help to protect organizational assets. Moreover, managers and executives can be more confident in financial reporting when effective controls are in place. Controls often take the form of budgets, balance sheets, income statements, operating ratios, and other financial tools.
