Organisational governance and compliance for SMEs

Corporate governance might sound like it’s strictly for big businesses. But SMEs need strong governance too.

In fact, good corporate governance is a critical factor in many businesses’ survival, whether they’re a multinational corporation or a ten-person team.

From the internal relationships between the board and the wider team, to the way you behave in the wider market. From ensuring compliance and minimising risk, to making the most of exciting opportunities. Good organisational governance sets the tone for a good, healthy business.

So how do you make sure you’re doing it right?

How The Finance People can help

Many small to medium sized businesses simply don’t have the time and resources needed to fully commit to good corporate governance and compliance.

At The Finance People, our experts are here to offer comprehensive audit and consultancy services. To appraise what your business is doing in the present, and help you build a stronger, more sustainable future.

We do this by:

  • Reviewing your board for effectiveness
  • Implementing robust controls
  • Encouraging diversification
  • Managing risk both internally and externally
  • Strategising and devising frameworks to ensure your board remains effective
  • Appointing and reviewing external auditors
  • Planning for the future, including succession planning and identifying rising managers

Why outsource your corporate governance and compliance strategy?

Corporate governance and compliance are such ‘internal’ issues, that it might seem strange to outsource them to an expert.

However, At The Finance People, experience tells us that an outside perspective could be exactly what your business needs to succeed.

Our people have earned their stripes by sitting on numerous boards, both in the public and private sectors. We’re always fully up to date with the latest legalities and compliance requirements. And crucially, we know exactly what good corporate governance looks like.

All of this ensures we can:

  • Advise all board members on their legal obligations
  • Strengthen relationships between shareholders and the senior management team
  • Improve the effectiveness of your board
  • Ensure you’re always ahead of the game when it comes to compliance
  • Drive transformational change for your business
