Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX)

The Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX) is a United States federal law following large corporate and accounting scandals in the early 2000s. SOX intends to protect shareholders and the general public from accounting errors and fraudulent practices in enterprises and improve corporate governance and accountability.


Who Must Comply with SOX?

SOX applies to:

  • All publicly held American companies.
  • Any international companies with registered equity or debt securities with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).
  • Any accounting firm or other third party that provides financial services to either of the above.

Publicly traded companies are required to ensure their internal business processes are appropriately monitored and managed to be SOX compliant. The consequences for non-compliance include fines or imprisonment, or both.
