Entity compliance and governance

We offer a tailored approach to address the ongoing challenges of entity compliance and governance. Our managed services are technology-enabled and structured to drive efficiency, risk reduction and cost transparency to your entity compliance and governance program.

What EY can do for you

As multinational companies expand, their corporate structures grow larger and more complex, making it challenging to ascertain that all of their legal entities comply with local company laws. Growing regulatory demand for corporate structure transparency requires companies to have a firm grip on status and development of group structures.

Many companies are engaging a single service provider that can execute compliance and governance responsibilities consistently around the globe. That’s where EY teams come in.

EY has a truly global Entity Compliance and Governance (ECG) practice which is part of EY Legal Managed Services and has made significant investment in technology to support an innovative global service delivery model. Our focus is on driving time and cost efficiencies and greater value by leveraging standardization, automation and data analytics.

Collaboration with EY teams mean you benefit from a single point of contact for all your entity compliance requirements with local specialist support in each of your jurisdictions, providing a consistent and harmonized service as well as full oversight of your global delivery. We offer clients fixed fee certainty across the service offerings.

We facilitate a strategic approach to routine and transactional compliance and provide our clients with tailored analysis and insights. This helps drive continuous improvement of organizational compliance and governance designed to effectively underpin their business.

Our services

EY teams provide a range of services which have been developed and refined in response to client needs:

Global delivery model

EY governance and compliance professionals are present across the globe in over 140 countries to deliver tailored compliance services.

EY global delivery model incorporates a single point-of-contact for clients as well as local specialists, regional offshore delivery centers and onshore engagement teams. This blend of resources means we are always operating in the right time zone, with the right level of expertise and with the appropriate resource costs.

EY teams can provide cost certainty for clients with a fixed fee for annual compliance as well as ad hoc work. The teams can provide an assessment framework for cost benchmarking so you can review your current spend on compliance and entity maintenance including internal and external spend. This is helping clients who find themselves under increasing cost pressure. After providing a cost analysis, EY teams can assist clients to implement a sustainable cost reduction program.

The risk based approach means that we drive predictability and risk reduction across the compliance function.

EY member firms do not practice law where not permitted by local law or regulation.
