In this issue of Corporate Advisor, we explain 13 corporate-governance, financial-reporting, and regulatory topics of crucial importance to CFOs and directors.  Much has been happening of particular relevance to boards – director identification numbers, whistleblowing and breach reporting, fraud, wages underpayment, and climate change.

Good news – there are no substantial new standards for 31 December. We’re focused on regulatory issues that affect the preparation of 31 December year ends, ASIC’s targets, FAQs, and lessons from previous reviews. Details are in the appendices. Directors and preparers need to keep these front-of-mind and address them.

To conclude, we identify two not-for-profits issues: the requirement for DGRs to become registered charities and how to maximise an audit’s value.

The Hall Chadwick QLD team looks forward to working with you on the challenges ahead.
