When it comes to compliance, even the smallest oversight can have a major impact on your profits and tarnish the good reputation you’ve worked so hard to build. Now one of the biggest concerns for directors and investors is their corporate responsibility. Compliance regulations have become increasingly stringent in the wake of the financial crisis and businesses face what may seem like a never-ending list of reporting and regulatory tasks. Failure to adhere to anti-money laundering controls, capital adequacy rules and corporate governance can lead not only to a damaged reputation and reduced shareholder value but can result in criminal action against company directors and large fines.
