Understanding business compliance laws

Keeping up to date with all the latest regulations and making sure your business is compliant can be time consuming and complex. But it’s worth getting it right at the start to avoid future problems.

Data protection and GDPR compliance

Businesses are now facing constant pressure to have robust policies and procedures in place when it comes to GDPR, and preventing financial crime such as money laundering, bribery, tax evasion, fraud and sanctions breaches. The risk of getting it wrong is huge, so let our experts guide you through what you need to do to protect your business.

We can help with:

  • Reviewing your Anti Money Laundering (AML) and financial crime policies and procedures to ensure that you are compliant with the latest regulations
  • Preparing for an Anti-Money Laundering audit
  • Reducing your risk of a breach
  • Training for your managers and teams on GDPR, AML compliance and financial crime prevention
  • Breach and incident management – to include how to report a breach and advice on how to reduce a fine or sentence for non-compliance

Company Secretarial

Company secretarial services are an important component of business administration, primarily concerned with corporate governance. While it is not a legal requirement to formally appoint a Company Secretary, a company must comply with several requirements under the Companies Act. In the absence of an appointed Company Secretary, such responsibilities rest with the Director(s) of the company.

For many directors, the challenge of balancing these duties alongside their role is unmanageable long term. Our team can provide you with company secretarial support that will streamline day-to-day tasks within your business, so you have the peace of mind that what needs doing is being done.

The UK-GDPR was drafted as a result of the UK leaving the EU, which resulted in the EU’s GDPR no longer applying domestically to the UK.

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) gives individuals more control over their personal information by forcing companies to reframe how they think about data privacy.

Any person or business that collects or processes personal data from any person in the UK or European Union.

Corporate governance is the system of rules, practices and processes by which a firm is directed and controlled. Boards of directors are responsible for the governance of their companies. The shareholders’ role in governance is to appoint the directors and the auditors and to satisfy themselves that an appropriate governance structure is in place.

Good examples include:

  • Calculation of the company’s carbon footprint
  • Respect for human rights in the company
  • Transparency of executive salaries
  • Implementation of a code of conduct for employees
