- The staff of National Taxation Bureau of the Southern Area, Ministry of Finance and its subordinate organizations, Xinying Branch, Tainan Branch, Pingtung Branch, Taitung Branch, Penghu Branch, Chiayi City Branch, and Chiayi County Branch, are responsible for establishing, implementing, and maintaining an adequate internal control system. The system, which is established based on risk assessment results, aims to achieve governance effectiveness, data reliability, adherence to the law as well as the safeguard of assets. The system should provide reasonable assurance; however, it excludes external risks which are beyond the control of National Taxation Bureau of the Southern Area, Ministry of Finance and its subordinate organizations and cannot be held accountable for.
- An internal control system has inherent limitation. No matter how perfectly designed, an effective internal control system can only provide a reasonable assessment of its stated objectives. Moreover, the effectiveness of an internal control system may be subject to changes due to extenuating circumstances beyond our control. Nevertheless, our internal control system contains self-monitoring mechanisms, which are able to detect and correct defects within the internal control system.
- Based on the findings of the assessment and auditing of the design and implementation of the 2023 internal control system, it is found that the establishment and implementation of the internal control system of the National Taxation Bureau of the Southern Area, Ministry of Finance and its subordinate organizations is effective on December 31, 2023 and is able to reasonably ensure achievement of the aforementioned goals.
- The present head of agency took her position on July 16, 2023. Before her inauguration, Ms. LU, JEN-HSIU and Ms. HSIEH, HUI-MEI, the former head of agency and the acting former head of agency, were responsible for promoting and supervising the relevant works.
