ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the views of chief financial officers (CFO) on the Sarbanes-Oxley law in the U.S. She claims that the law enhances the financial profile in the field of business. She cites that the problem with the law is mainly due to the lack of guidance from the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and the Public Company Accountancy Oversight Board (PCAOB). She then reveals that SEC and PCAOB have launched efforts to disseminate information on the law.
