Explanation:

The full answer, which did not fit above, is:

closes and (checks, or controls, or inspects, or examines, or verifies, or audits) the company’s ledgers

We don’t call accounting books - “books” - in English, we call them “ledgers”. See:

https://www.accountingcoach.com/terms/L/ledger

http://dictionary.cambridge.org/dictionary/english/ledger

http://www.investopedia.com/terms/g/generalledger.asp

http://www.businessdictionary.com/definition/ledger.html

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ledger

Also, Kon. Kantzou's Greek – English Λεξικό Λογιστικής gives the meaning of ‘έλεγχος’ (in an accounting sense) to be ‘audit’, and the Oxford Greek – English dictionary gives the relevant meanings of ‘ελέγχω’ to be ‘control’, ‘check’, ‘inspect, ‘verify’, ‘examine’, ‘audit’.

See the following examples:

Of course, you can also say, "... the business's ledgers", instead of "the company's ledgers". See:
