Second, the internal control of listed companies in China to the problems

Guangxia, Dahlman financial fraud and the CAO, negative typical of our internal control, has left us a bitter lesson. Therefore, in-depth analysis of the internal control failures and their causes, it is very urgent and necessary.
1, the internal control environment is relatively poor
Internal control environment is to form an organization's internal control atmosphere to reflect the organization's internal staff especially the attitude of the management of the internal control, internal control other elements. Control of any enterprise in the control environment, control environment reflects the attitude of the enterprises on the importance of internal control of the enterprise. The unity of the ownership and management of listed companies, the arbitrariness of the decision-making and operations management. Enterprise management has often awareness of the importance of internal control is not enough or unwilling to establish and implement internal control, the former is that their own business is sufficient to ensure the safety of the property, while the latter is driven by profit motives. Management of listed companies want to maximize profits at the same time as much as possible tax evasion, and sound internal control is effective to prevent such illegal behavior. Management in appointing accountants cronyism, bring greater convenience for themselves to seek benefits, such as falsifying cost or conceal income. Due to the success or failure of internal control depends on the control consciousness and behavior of people, often the managers of the rejection of self-control so that the internal control can not improve the control environment, which also affect the employees' understanding and implementation of the control.
Specifically, the internal control environment is relatively poor mainly reflected in the following aspects. First, enterprise management awareness of internal control weakness: the lack of a documented system of internal control, even though they have worked out corresponding internal control system, it is difficult to concrete implementation. Second, the organization set unreasonable: cost savings, financial sector, the lack of contain links, and the lack of coordination between the department transverse enough attention, leading to the same level departments lack the necessary exchange of information communication insensitive, coordination poor. Third, the enterprise system is not perfect: the lack of incentive and restraint mechanisms. Fourth, the enterprise system is not comprehensive: not for all aspects of the business, individual departments to develop appropriate rules and regulations, the trade-off is more serious. Fifth, the company serious short-sighted behavior, a lack of understanding of the corporate culture.
, Risk consciousness, contempt of internal control
With the continuous development of market economy, the listed company at this stage facing greater environmental changes and survival risks such as market risk, credit risk, operational risk, reputational risk, technology risk, and faced with the change of the type of transaction and tools merger acquisition, bankruptcy reorganization, and e-commerce. Enterprises should establish the identification, analysis and management of risk mechanism, and confirm that the high-risk areas in order to strengthen the management. Listed Companies in China is the lack of such a mechanism, the shareholders' meeting, board of directors, board of supervisors, managers and mutual supervision and restraint mechanism is not established, the Board Risk Assessment Committee or non-existent, to cause random decision-making in the case of the absence of a feasibility study. Neglect of risk control of listed companies in the running process weakening risk management, risk assessment, risk awareness weak widespread. At the same time, of a large part of the company's management emphasis on production and management, technology development, contempt internal management despise internal control failed to recognize the significance of internal control, internal controls on the operation and management of the strategic height to consider.
3, the internal control system is not standardized
Currently, listed companies in China in accordance with the the SFC requirements established internal control system, but its operating specification processes are more extensive, and the lack of a unified, detailed, and has a strong operational posts processes. Problems often shirking of responsibility makes it impossible to be held accountable. Some companies even have an internal control system, but not implemented, the non-implementation of the system, according to the system assessment, it exists in name only, can not play its constraints, the supervisory role. The flexibility of some of the company's accounting system is too large, the comparability of the information poor, misleading decision-making, resulting in significant losses. Sound regulatory framework and improve operational processes is an important part of the system of internal control, and can effectively prevent risks. Unfortunately, the number of listed companies is more important than the development of lighter than management, there is the need for additional income, inadequate cost control, a serious waste of assets and loss issues, poor operational efficiency, frequent personnel changes, the internal control system or a very imperfect , or a mere formality.
4, internal audit institutions of lax supervision
Our internal audit institutions originally established under the requirements of the Government, companies do not really recognize the role of the internal audit, so that the internal audit institutions did not really play its role, which is mainly manifested in: first, our internal audit function still troubleshooting a variety of measures. Only focus on supervision afterwards, do not pay attention before, during control; only attach importance to the audit of the financial statements, and ignore the analysis and evaluation of the company's management status quo, and to make recommendations. Second, internal audit institutions often essentially led by the management and parallel with the other departments, therefore the independence of the poor poor and authoritative. Third, most of the internal auditors from the accounting department transferred or concurrently by the accounting department personnel, lack of audit knowledge, especially with the expansion of business scale, business complex, difficult to meet the needs of internal audit staff. Third, strengthening the listed company's internal control measures
