ABSTRACT

The study sought to determine the relationship between internal control system and financial performance of few selected SACCOs in Luwero town council. To achieve the general objective it was broken into three measurable objections which included the assessing of internal control activities and its effect on financial performance of the SACCOs, studying the impact or effect of auditing activities on financial performance and lastly the influence of control environment on financial performance of the SACCOs. The study was carried out on three SACCOs and sample was 58 respondents. This was used secondary data and primary data that was acquired by the use of interviews and questionnaire. The findings revealed that the SACCOs had control environment as one of the functionality of the internal controls of the organization that greatly impacts of the financial performance of the SACCO$. It was also established that management closely monitors implementation on internal control systems. The study examined the effect of control activities on financial performance of selected SACCOs in Luwero town council. The result also revealed that it is impossible of the member of staff to have access to all valuable information without the consent of senior staff. The statistical results from the regression analysis show that there is a possible relationship between auditing and financial performance (r= 6.265). It was concluded that there is a positive relationship between internal controls and financial performance. This indicated that the proper or efficient or improvement in the internal controls will automatically lead to improved financial performance. The limitation of the study included members were not informed more about the internal control and this called for more explanation. This took amount of time.
