Application TCO

Systems and software applications are often purchased and implemented without knowing the life cycle costs. Replacing or keeping an existing business application only makes financial sense if you know the true costs and risks to support and maintain an application. The true total cost of ownership (TCO) via technology business management (TBM) will guide your decision making and strategic planning.

Prepare a Business to be Sold

There are many reasons an owner may want to sell a company, such as retirement, illness, moving on to something else, financial difficulties, divorce, or a hot market. To maximize a company's value, an owner should start preparing a business for sale, at least two years before approaching potential buyers. Be prepared to provide buyers with what they want to see before they ever ask. You can attract more buyers by demonstrating how well run your company is and why it would be a good investment.

Treasury Controls

A treasury function manages some of the most critical assets of a company. The data is highly sensitive and valuable. It is also heavily scrutinized both internally and by many external entities. Therefore, internal controls around the treasury function must be well defined and followed. Ensure your financial instruments are properly managed, optimized, meeting agreements, tracked and recorded, and secured.

Financial Crime - Anti-bribery

An organization is responsible for ensuring a person within your organization or a company performing services for your organization does not commit bribery on your behalf. Companies that do not implement adequate anti-bribery controls can be held liable for failing to prevent a person from bribing to benefit your organization. But adhering to a structured anti-bribery program provides a defense against prosecution and can mitigate the financial impact if one is caught breaking the law.

Financial Crime - Sanctions

Sanctions are government restrictions on the import or export of certain goods and services, often to or from a specific individual, company, or country, to advance foreign policy objectives. Conducting business with a sanctioned entity creates severe legal and financial liabilities. Avoid penalties by developing a sanctions governance program to help manage economic sanctions and trade embargoes.
