Corporate Governance

Corporate Governance is in the spotlight.  High profile corporate collapses have resulted in a cascade of new reporting requirements: there are significant changes underway not only for quoted companies, but also many private companies. The emphasis has shifted. 

Increasingly, management will be held accountable for the wider impact of their business in society, on employees, suppliers and customers. They will need to set up or review mechanisms to show how they engage with these stakeholders, and how they have taken their needs into account in their decision-making. They may need to review their corporate purpose, board and evaluation structures and executive pay in advance of the start of their next financial year.  

On this Corporate Governance site, we will bring you the latest changes. As a first resource, try using our "Corporate Governance reporting checker" to ascertain which of the many new requirements will apply to you. Our team is then on hand to answer any questions and discuss what actions are relevant for you.
