Through the correct declaration and paying on time of taxes, the enterprise ensures transparency and prevents itself from being legally prosecuted. The complexity of tax laws, the high discretionary powers of tax officials, the low cost of punishment are only some factors creating opportunities for corruption in revenue administration. An enterprise can resist bribery demands from tax officials only if it is in fact declaring correct revenues and paying taxes on those revenues.
Avoidance of Criminal Charges
This is, perhaps, the most beneficial importance of compliance in a business. No business wants to face criminal charges for not adhering to the law. With a proper compliance kit and proper compliance management an enterprise can stay on the right side of the law.
These compliance kits are extensive software and databases that will automatically keep track of all the information and will help audit court cases, compliance risk management factors, performance management, and others.
Building Positive Reputation
The success of your business pretty much depends on its public image. When an enterprise starts facing several court cases, the general public will lose their trust in the enterprise and sales in products and services will eventually drop. Compliance will ensure that an enterprise can uphold a positive image and build consumer trust. This also helps build consumer loyalty, since customers are more likely going to return to a service or product from a company they identify as trustworthy.
This also helps a business with sponsors, advertisers, and government requirements. A business that fulfills regulatory business compliance through successful corporate compliance management generally gets signed quickly and easily whenever needed. They also pull through incidents like individual court cases discreetly before it grows into a public concern.
Higher Productivity in the Enterprise
When an enterprise starts facing prosecutions or court cases, the stakeholders and the employees spend a lot of time in defending difficult situations. This leads to low morale and poor productivity in the enterprise and at time leads to a loss of trust in their enterprise.
Internal compliance to wages, employee benefits, compensations and employee protection will create a positive environment in the work area.
It is important that internal compliance is adhered to, since it will ensure that employees are satisfied and that all complaints or issues are monitored and addressed properly before they grow and affect the entire corporation.
