For global businesses, it is general that audit procedures are implemented by the internal audit team of head office under the supervision of the parent company. And, it is common for staff members of the internal audit team to visit offices around the world and perform specific procedures stipulated in audit instructions.
However, its audit procedures don’t really work well even though the global audit team is organized with excellent staff members, because they are not familiar with local Japanese business practices. Furthermore, in Japan where mutual harmonization is respected, strict and inconsiderate auditor’s attitude would not be accepted by employees working in the Japanese office. In addition, due to the far distance between the parent company and subsidiaries, it is difficult to dispatch audit staff frequently.
