In response to the Government’s recent white paper ‘Restoring trust in audit and corporate governance’, Jon Thompson’s (the FRC’s Chief Executive) made it clear that the top priority is the UK version of Sarbanes Oxley (SOx). Join our workshop to understand why this is an opportunity for your business that you really shouldn’t miss.
As a well-established and trusted tool for increased quality and business transparency in the US, 8 out of 10 CFOs* believe that the information in their financial statements has improved since SOx was enacted. From clearer financial reporting and heightened fraud detection, to early insight into potential issues across the business, the benefits of embedding a strong internal control framework can go far beyond compliance to enable greater access to the capital markets and more profitable business growth. To fully reap the benefits of stronger internal controls, including greater data accuracy, improved transparency, you should begin your UK SOx journey early and with a clear eye to the benefits you want to drive.
Join us to discover how you can lead this transformation across your business and ensure that you’re ready to meet the challenges ahead. Breakout discussions include:
• Thinking beyond compliance
How clearer accountabilities, more standardised ways of working and improved processes can support broader transformation and drive longer term benefits beyond simple compliance.
• Gaining senior support and investment
How to build your business and benefits case to gain senior support and investment to transform your business.
• Re-purposing or leveraging live projects
How to embed a SOx style framework into your existing transformation and change programmes avoiding costly future re-designs.
• Starting your journey
How to get started and what actions you can take now including identifying key risks up front to enable better scoping and sizing of appropriate SOx controls.
