• Starting a business is not just about having an idea and ‘giving it a go’. It’s also about having the correct strategy, understanding obligations and ensuring the infrastructure is robust and sustainable. A business should ensure that its foundations are firm enough to withstand the diversity of economic demands.

    A Compliance and Governance framework is key to ensuring that the business operates within a controlled and managed environment. From creating a Privacy Policy, to implementing an effective oversight of risk management or an integrated structure for internal controls; Corporate Compliance and Governance can set the ethical blueprint of a Business.

    When constructing your Compliance and Governance framework, it is important to consider such things as the Company’s:

     -         Privacy Policy

    -          Risk Management Process

    -          Business Continuity Process

    -          Financial Reporting (Internal and External)

    -          Board of Directors and Director Responsibilities

    -          Shareholder and Stakeholder Communication

    -          Anti-Money Laundering and Counter Terrorist Financing Policy

    Remember, your Compliance and Governance frameworks are about your business! They should reflect the culture, ethos and style of what your business is about; the above is just a sample of what a Business Owner’s should consider.
