Since 2002, Sarbanes-Oxley has altered the way public companies do business, bringing major changes to the regulation of financial practices and corporate governance. For some, it has also raised the cost of doing business. Section 404 (which requires companies to report on their internal financial structure and procedures) has been a point of contention - larger companies find it difficult and smaller companies find the costs prohibitive. These concerns have prompted the SEC to reassess how feasible it is to impose such strict controls on smaller companies, and whether the cost of Sarbanes-Oxley will force companies to shun the public markets. What can companies do to deal with these requirements? What effect on the public markets will Sarbanes-Oxley have?
