The Financial Reporting and Auditing Aspects of Corporate Governance

 

Good corporate governance contributes to business efficiency and economic growth. The European Commission’s Communication on Corporate Governance and Company Law of 21 May 2003, which FEE actively supports, has ensured that corporate governance is again high on the political agenda. With this new publication, FEE wishes to maintain the momentum by outlining the next steps that need to be taken.

The discussion paper details the elements of good corporate governance relevant to the process of financial reporting and auditing and has considered the fundamental relationships and obligations between the company boards, auditors, shareholders and other stakeholders in an effective corporate governance system. It makes a series of practical recommendations which would strengthen corporate governance and increase confidence in financial reporting. The role of the audit committee is crucial, as a fully functioning audit committee helps to improve the quality of financial reporting.

The discussion paper focuses on publicly listed companies, but is also relevant to other entities, in particular to public interest entities.
