Corporate Governance

Decision making to match the realities of the markets

It goes without saying, in today’s rapidly changing world, well-governed companies perform better. We regularly see organisations that have robust and structured corporate governance processes in place gaining advantages over their competitors. These organisations can respond quickly with their corporate decision making to match the realities of the markets in which they operate.

At Empower Business Accounting, good corporate governance is second nature to us. Managing the flow of reliable information between our clients and their stakeholders is a core part of our role in helping our clients do business more transparently and create a trusted trade environment. We act as the gatekeepers of corporate governance and provide accurate, quality and ethical financial reporting.

We bring to you the four pillars of the Governance Best Practice in New Zealand:

  • Determining purpose
  • An effective governance culture
  • Holding to Account
  • Effective compliance

We provide high standard accounting practices and accurate accounting data to help organisations make advantageous and intelligent decisions about how to operate in their industry and how much to invest in a project.
