Internal Cash Control E4-5 (a) List the weaknesses in internal control over cash disbursements. There are various troubles with internal control of currency payments within the Idaho Company. For the safety of the company, the checks are in a fireproof safe. For accounting proposes all checks should be pre-numbered. I believe that no one on the bank account needs to have right to use to the plain checks and submitting information in the currency payments journal. If a signor at the bank happens to be the treasurer, all he should do is assess the checks for correctness. The treasurer should not have accountability for approving disbursing payment for invoices or any other statements. With this, it can guarantee that no one can exploit currency for individual use or commit fraud. (b) Write a memo indicating your recommendations for improving company procedures.

I have come up with some suggestion that include the following: 1. Having checks pre-numbered 2. Securing all blank checks in a fireproof safe
