As 2023 winds down, CFOs and finance wizards are gearing up for new adventures. Top of the list? Compliance. It’s getting more complex with new rules and risks, especially after this whole pandemic saga.
Deloitte tossed out some numbers recently, saying compliance is a hot topic for CFOs, right up there with digital makeovers and finding top-notch talent. A whopping 60% are planning to throw more cash at compliance, and 40% are looking to expand their teams. This uptick in attention and resources speaks to the growing complexity in areas such as:
- Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) Reporting: With increasing demands for transparency on environmental and social impacts, CFOs face the task of ensuring accurate and globally-aligned ESG reporting. This includes intensive data collection, analysis, stakeholder engagement, and communication.
- Cybersecurity and Data Privacy: The rapid digital transformation brings heightened cyber threats. CFOs must ensure IT system security and compliance with diverse data protection laws, alongside managing the financial and reputational risks of cyber incidents.
- Tax and Trade Changes: The shifting global tax landscape, catalyzed by digital economy and pandemic-induced fiscal pressures, requires CFOs to stay abreast of changes in tax rules and navigate complex trade dynamics.
