Within the new regulatory environment risk and governance are to the forefront of every business interaction – be that with the bank, the Companies Registration Office, the Revenue, shareholders and indeed customers. They are no longer the responsibility of the proprietor or the board, locked far away from prying eyes – everyone who deals with a business in today’s marketplace expects accountability and transparency. Regulators and stakeholders are no longer acquiescent; they have a duty to act if they feel impropriety is afoot.
Financial risks also pose a real threat to the viability of a business. The range of financial risks in today’s marketplace is alarmingly varied from supplier risk, to capital risks, to insolvency threats, to funding concerns. Business owners are not compliance and risk experts so they need to trust their advisors have the expertise to identify, manage and mitigate risk.
