Corporate Accounting



The demand for transparent corporate accounting practices is higher than ever and the financial authorities are tightening their grip on loose accounting practices commonly practiced by corporate enterprises at all levels. With recent amendments to the law, such as the Act on External Audit of Stock Companies and the Financial Investment Services and Capital Markets Act, an emphasis is being placed on proper and compliant corporate accounting practice. With stricter standards in place, a party responsible for violating such accounting standards would not only face a number of sanctions and penalties levied by the authorities, it could potentially be subject to investor disputes, securities-related class actions and a delisting. As a result, businesses must take a proactive approach and understand the legal and practical implications of the amendments made to the law in order to analyze how it will generate and calculate its corporate numbers while ensuring they are transparent and in-line accounting standards set-out by the authorities.
