Corporate Compliance

There are many reasons why listed and unlisted company groups should consider outsourcing corporate compliance functions, including:

  • Reduction in direct costs of employing specialist personnel (eg. salaries, superannuation).
  • Reduction in indirect costs of employing specialist personnel (eg. occupancy costs).
  • Reduction in staff training and development costs.
  • The need for specialist work being undertaken by specialists.
  • External assistance by experienced practitioners who are able to add value to the company.
  • Overall cost savings can be significant.
