Outsourcing of the products and services to other companies is already a very used option that in general aims to have more qualified products or services with lower costs. As in the other sectors the professional auditors offer to outsource a company’s internal control services in order to increase their quality or to lower the internal auditing system costs. By outsourcing, a company can depute the auditing tasks that can be performed in a small amount of time and an internal audit structure can be too expensive to maintain. Through this study we evaluate an analytical overview of the internal auditing outsourcing by summarizing the factors that drive the company’s managers or stakeholders to partially or totally outsource the internal control auditing.
