Regulatory Compliance Filing
With the continual changes in government rules and regulations designed to keep a company honest, and the maneuverings that are often necessary to run a business, it can be hard for to be sure companies remain in compliance with government regulation. We at Hogg, Shain, and Scheck keep companies in the Greater Toronto Area on track with their accounting and financial filing requirements.
Services for Newer Companies
Newer companies typically have little idea of what the government’s financial reporting requirements are. We can not only explain government regulatory policies and their requirements, but we make sure the company understands the necessity and process of corporate financial disclosure. We help firms register with the proper regulatory agencies. We canset up calendars that track report due dates and make sure your staff have all the forms they need. We can also help develop financial policies and manuals that staff can refer to in order to keep the company in compliance.
Services for Expanding Companies
Companies who are expanding often exceed regulator limitations of smaller businesses. Growing businesses may have stricter financial regulatory compliance requirements they need to know about. Sometimes this includes reporting to additional regulatory agencies. At Hogg, Shain and Scheck we help expanding companies stay in compliance – explaining the new regulations and their intentions, and filing applications. This includes companies who are starting to export. If the company has just incorporated and now has shareholders, we can take the company through the transition period, showing them how to deal with shareholders and the stock market and setting them up with necessary shareholder reporting documents.
Services for Established Companies
For the established company, the accountants at Hogg, Shain and Scheck can set up and keep a calendar of regulatory requirements, alerting key people whenever reports need to be filed. We prepare and deliver interim and annual financial statements to shareholders. We train company staff in financial compliance procedures and carry out annual or bi-annual audits to make sure compliance is maintained. If securities regulators come along to conduct a compliance review, we support the company in that process.
We at Hogg, Shain & Scheck make it easy for companies to keep their regulatory compliance filings up to date. Although it may seem confusing at first, once a routine is established and a company’s staff knows what they are doing, compliance can be a straightforward process. By preventing regulatory hassles and delays stemming from inadvertent regulatory non-compliance, we often become a company’s best financial friend.
