Subject : Recommendations to promote the independence of the Compliance Function
Date : 29th August, 2011

In reviewing last year regulator’ report on our bank, the bank have been imposed more than fifteen major violations from the regulators and some of the violations have got the bank into paying a huge amount of penalties. When penalties imposed the reputation of the bank will be at risk and this risk will lead the bank to financial loss. The bank has to redefine its risk measures and practices to avoid such failure in meeting regulators needs and meet all compliance requirements.
Compliance Risk
Our bank is conceder to be one of the leader banks nationally and internationally and in order to keep this position the bank has to manage its compliance risk strictly starting from compliance function. The very common practice which conceder to be an issue from a regulatory aspect is going through all the rules and regulations and stating we are in compliance with them and we are not 100% complied. Now it is the time for the bank to put a full stop on such kind of issues and focus on working on compliance risk by having an effective and efficient compliance function.

...TAX COMPLIANCE: AN ANALYSIS ON TAX KNOWLEDGE AND DEMOGRAPHIC FACTORS Noor Suhaila Shaharuddin (2012) & Mohd Rizal Palil (PhD). Tax Compliance: An Analysis On Tax Knowledge And Demographic Factors. ABSTRACT Empirical research on tax compliance has shown that knowledge of taxation is essential as determinants of tax behavior. In other words, to be tax compliant individual taxpayers need to possess some basic knowledge on personal taxation such as chargeability of income, exemptions, reliefs, rebates in order to compute tax liability correctly. Taxpayers are less compliant if they do not understand the basic concept of taxation. Thus, the purpose of this study is to examine the effect of tax knowledge in understanding the tax compliance behaviors. In addition, this study also examined three common demographic variables that may be relevant in explaining tax compliance behavior. A total of 50 questionnaires were distributed to all academicians at Faculty of Management and Muamalah, KUIS. Out of the 50 questionnaires distributed, a total of 39 usable responses were received, which represents response rate of 78 per cent.

... 1. Introduction As a Corporate Citizen business organizations have to prove their accountability to the society associated with the profit maximization motive to preserve the prolonged existence of the corporate image. This social concern has given the birth of corporate social responsibility (CSR). While the concept of CSR is widely accepted, there is no single, universally accepted definition of CSR. Generally, it refers to business decision-making linked to ethical values, compliance with legal instruments, and respect for people, communities and the environment. CSR has been defined as “the integration of business operations and values whereby the interests of all stakeholders, including customer, employees, investors and the environment are reflected in the organization’ polices and actions” (Smith,2002). An international survey of corporate sustainability reporting conducted by KPMG in 2002 found that 45%of the world’s largest 250 companies now produce environmental and social reports, up from 35% in 2000. This survey shows how much disclosure of CSR is expanded. The companies have to satisfy the divergent number of stakeholders, the credible relationship is created through CSR reporting. It improves communication with the community and other stakeholders (Anand, 2002) and results in competitive advantage (King, 2002). CSR through ensuring better and safe working environment, elimination ofcorruption, focusing of human rights and environmental sustainability are......

...cting as a “compelling event” in the adoption of new breeds of risk management and corporate compliance products and services are the recently highlighted fraudulent business practices occurring within many of America’s Fortune 1000 corporations. Governmental and regulatory investigations have identified, secured, and utilized significant amounts of incriminating evidence from within the corporate Information Technology (IT) infrastructure. Purposeful fraudulent activities aside, second-level effects are now beginning to trickle down into thousands of well run corporations that operate within highly regulated market sectors. For many, their only “questionable act” is a commitment to the deployment of technologies and business practices that promise to improve workforce productivity, client and supplier relationships, and shareholder return. The challenges for corporate entities to address the issues is often one of trying to “herd cats.” The insatiable desire for technology that enables real-time communication, as well as immediate capabilities to develop and distribute information has created a huge information management quandary. Our ability to communicate and distribute information “at will” has created potential significant corporate risk associated with failure to adhere to governmental, industrial, or self-imposed corporate compliance metrics. Although much is in place to regulate previous generations of communication and information distribution methods, recent......
