Outsource: Challenges of Corporate Entity Compliance in Colombia?
The introduction of International Financial Reports Standards in Colombia and new local regulation and ongoing changes in the legal environment brought about an unprecedented need for companies to implement rigorous internal controls and ensure effective management of legal entities on a global and local basis. This has become one of the major challenges facing multinational corporations.
Country Managers must know and understand the changing of legislative requirements governing the administration of their company and keeping up to date.
