Just when you think everything at work is under control, those bad dreams begin to permeate again. In a word- CIPC Regulatory Compliance- full of rules and regulations of dotting the I’s and crossing the T’s, not forgetting various compliance upgrades including the adoption of structured data; right?

Be it a company that features on the Fortune 500 list or one that is run by just one individual, if you need to comply with regulatory compliance, this is one area you definitely don’t want to get wrong.

Penalties for non-compliance are steep- it can be damaging for the company’s bank accounts and/or its reputation. Take for example the directive passed by the CIPC in South Africa known as the AR Hard Stop. This mandate prevents the submission of the Annual Return unless either a valid set of Annual Financial Statements (AFS) or Financial Accountability Supplements (FAS) is submitted. In South Africa, submitting the right documents on time is very important to all qualifying entities because as per the CIPC notice 52, not abiding to this rule may cost companies up to 10% of the company’s turnover.

So how do you go about getting rid of these nightmares? Partnering with an XBRL solution provider is the first step.
