We operate in a paperless environment. Internal controls are more critical in a paperless environment. During COVID-19 companies have deployed employee in remote locations. This “work from anywhere” WFA environment makes internal controls more difficult as events & activities are not performed in central locations. We must rely on technology to combine them to a central platform. Accounts payable is moving to a transactions-based processing environment to replace the outdated documents processing environment. It all starts with accounts payable since it is at the core of all other company processes, systems & functions. Hence accounts payable must drive all internal control elements of awareness and concern. 80% of all transactions are processed through accounts payable. COVID-19 has caused a significant increase in fraud waste & misuse. Robust internal control policies and procedures must the created to cope with the transactions-based accounts payable

COVID-19 has created situations that will remain in a revamped environment. We must take the lessons learned during COVID-19 to re-imagine processes & internal controls in a post COVID-19 environment. The transactions-based environment requires companies to be proactive rather than reactive and interact with transactions in real time to achieve the goals of internal controls
