Managing a Business/Materiality treshold


What is materiality threshold and how might the materiality threshold level set for negative deviations differ between a small and large business?

I think materiality is relative.  It would depend on what one is considering how large a proportion results could vary from expected before it's considered "material".  

This is not a question that I can answer in the abstract.  I would require a more concrete situation.

I can answer any kind of general management question for a small or medium sized business. I have knowledge in legal, financial, operations, and business development/marketing issues in businesses ranging from 5 to 500 employees.


I have 15 years in progressively more senior positions at Telesat Canada. For the past 15 years I have been building small businesses and selling them. I sold my company in 2005 and became CEO of the parent company, which was publicly traded. I have been consulting and teaching college for the past five years, so i have been able to see many different clients' issues, and how to solve them.
