Internal audit King III Principle Explanatory note The board ensures that there is an effective risk-based internal audit Due to capital and resource constraints, the Company does not have a separate internal audit function. The oversight of internal control remained with the audit committee and the required testing and investigation was performed in-house by competent financial staff or external consultants as required. A separate internal audit division with a qualified internal auditor will be formalised and implemented when the group has the necessary capital and resources. The internal audit tasks remain with the audit committee for the time being until the internal audit department will take responsibility of all internal audit matters. The external expert utilised to value the Elite debtors book and the IFRS consultant are examples of this.
